Opera Explained: L'ELISIR D'AMORE (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

L'elisir d'amore, or The Elixir of Love, has remained popular for almost two centuries because of a touching tale and a galaxy of comic characters adapted from the traditional commedia dell' arte.

Opera Explained: PAGLIACCI

Opera Explained: PAGLIACCI (audio product)

For ages: 11-13, High School

Pagliacci may be the most completely short opera in the repertory and owes much of its impact to a brilliant story based, it is said, on true life and told through the device of a play-within-a-play. The action is set in Calabria in the deep south of Italy where the jealousies and illicit passions of atroupe of strolling actors precisely intersect with the play they are performing- to both touching...   [click here for more]
