Opera for the Entire Family

SUNDAY, October 21 -- 2:00 p.m.

Who doesn’t love a good story? Who doesn’t love great music? Comedy, romance, murder and mayhem, opera has it all and whether you’re eight or eighty, this free program at Crowell Library will be a great chance to get the lowdown on this high art. Los Angeles is so fortunate to have its own opera company and LA Opera Talks make it easy and convenient to learn about and appreciate the talents that lie behind these amazing productions, starting with Placido Domingo, a world renown treasure with more than 3600 career performances to his credit.

Opera is not just magnificent music, dance and theater with astounding sets on a beautiful stage. Opera can sweep you away to foreign lands, take you back in time, dazzle you with pageantry and bring history to life. It is literature, social studies, cultural diversity, multiple languages and most of all, it is exciting! Come explore the world of opera, on stage and behind the scenes. There is something for everyone. A community educator from Los Angeles Opera will share video clips, recorded music, answer questions and will get one and all excited about this unique art form.
This introduction is entirely free at Crowell Public Library. Bring the whole family!
