The journalist and communicator has selected and presented a title for each video in this online initiative.
Madama Butterfly, Il barbiere di Siviglia, Rigoletto, La flauta màgica or La Traviata are very well known operas, probably all of you who read these lines have heard of them, and many of you would even know the composer of each one. But we dare to predict that if we were to ask how many of you could explain the respective arguments, or how many of you have seen them performed - even if not live but through a screen -, those who would raise their hands would be far fewer. Now you have a magnificent opportunity to enter into these and other operas thanks to the online course organized by CaixaForum and conducted by the journalist and communicator Marcel Gorgori. It is entitled Opera for All, and in each video Gorgori talks about the opera in question in a very pedagogical way and invites you to watch a performance through the MyOperaPlayer platform.
In addition to the titles mentioned at the beginning, you will also find Romeo and Juliet by Charles Gounod, Lucía de Lammermoor by G. Donizetti, El holandés errante, by R. Wagner, and Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci by P. Mascagni and R. Leoncavallo, two operas, the latter being quite brief and usually performed together for more than a century.
An excellent occasion, then, to learn about various aspects of opera without leaving home and to enjoy recordings starring great voices. You will find more information here.
