We are thrilled to announce the first lecture —part of a three-piece Adult Lecture Series— “Introduction to Opera” that will kick off on Wednesday, February 12th from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Boston’s North End Branch of the Boston Public Library.

Designed and led by NEMPAC staff member Pamela Feo, PhD in musicology, this series focuses on the compelling world of “opera”. Great for those new to opera and seasoned opera-goers alike, the audience will learn about the history and highlights of this 400-year-old genre, with a lecture and live performance of some of opera’s most beloved pieces.

With both NEMPAC and Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) hosting operas in Boston’s North End this Spring, this will be a wonderful kickoff event to better understand and gear up for the opera experiences surrounding the neighborhood as the weather gets nicer!

This community event is free and open to the public.

The following two lectures will be Preview to Handel’s “Giulio Cesare” and Preview to NEMPAC Opera Project 2020 Production “The Barber of Seville”.
