       Join us for an evening of opera and music!  Kathleen Bielawski, local composer, pianist, music instructor and opera lover, hosts and facilitates this informal, fun group.   The Met Opera Music Group meetings follow the schedule for Live and Encore presentation of the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD 2016-2017 season.

       Each designated Thursday, highlights of the scheduled opera will be listened to and discussed with a focus on plot, music, composer and historical context of the opera.  Musical pieces and cast biographies are presented.  Group discussion/participation are welcomed. 

       After the first meeting, the previous opera production will be discussed before introduction of the next scheduled opera.  Other topics include the evolution of opera, technology and stagecraft at the Met, comic vs. tragic opera, opera form and composers' techniques for writing and composing operas.

Selected Thursday evenings.  Each meeting date is scheduled two days prior to the Live Saturday Met Opera Live in HD 2016-20167 broadcasts shown at the Century and Tikhatnu Theaters in Anchorage, Alaska.

This is an opportunity to increase your familiarity with, or indulge your passion, in the wonderful and grand world of opera. SALUT!
