If you had to teach a class on opera, what might you do on the very first day?

Go to the movies! Even if you are a newcomer to the world of opera, you have probably heard opera’s best-known music through popular and award-winning films. Professor Swayne will explore the impact that filmmakers create by using classical music in a film. Enjoy this discussion along with fellow western US and Canadian Dartmouth community members from the comfort of your home.
