THE UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE
The Opera Group has become very popular since it started four years ago. Each month we choose an opera and view excerpts from a video.
We look at the background of the writing of the opera, discover its story and comment on what the music tells us about the characters and how it is used to enhance the drama. We also comment on the production we are seeing, sometimes irreverently!
If any member would like to volunteer to lead a session about an opera of their choosing, their contribution will be welcome.
There are two groups which broadly follow the same programme.
The first meetings will be on Wednesday 12 and Friday 14 September.
Website: Full details of our programme can be found on our website http://gsarchive.net/u3a/opera/index.html
Venue: The Wednesday Group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and the Friday Group on the 2nd Friday. Both groups meet in the Woolman Room at 2.00pm.
Cost of £1 per session.
