Since the 1970’s opera has reinvented itself for a new age, utilizing techniques borrowed from the film industry. Today’s topics are no longer just melodramatic or mythical; they deal with real world events, and contemporary ideas. Add to this, musical styles are taken from pop, jazz, and a new classicism and romanticism, and it is clear that opera is changing with the times.
PLU professor, musical arranger and composer of three operas, Dr. Gregory Youtz, will give a talk on The Remarkable Resurgence of Opera. Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 10:30 – 12:30, Morken Center, PLU’s lower campus, $15 payable at the door.
