One Response to Lecture-In-Bed

If you have never seen Dr. Dubberly speak on opera – then you are missing out. He started off this lecture by saying “THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO was is favorite opera” and it showed! Everyone left the lecture waiting in anticipation for November to get here. Plus, we got to listen to him while lounging on REALLY comfortable beds.

The best thing about his lectures… you don’t need a PhD in opera or a 500 page book to understand them. He really explains the musical elements and the context of the opera so clearly. I will never forget the lecture he did for Amici on MACBETH and Joe Green (Giuseppe Verdi) last fall. Joe has since become one of my favorite composers.
