Autumn 2017 with the Opera Club: Murder, Love, and Passion, Italian-Style

The AWC Opera Club’s new season is all planned and ready to go. This time, we will begin with two short projects to bring us through the autumn in fine musical fashion.

Pietro Mascagni’s “Cavalleria Rusticana” and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s “Pagliacci” will start us off with a double dose of Italian love, passion, pride, and deadly consequences. We will get to know these two short operas at single meetings in September and October, followed by an outing to a paired performance of both at the Hamburg Staatsoper in mid-October.

“Cav/Pag” will be followed by Beethoven's "Fidelio", beginning in the early new year. Watch this space or check the email Newsletter for more details.
