This workshop will dive into the languages of Italian, French, and German opera, offering participants a deeper understanding of this classical art form. The session focuses on key expressions and themes such as ‘addio’ (farewell), 'Schönheit' (beauty), ‘rêves’ (dreams), and more, providing participants with insights into the emotional and thematic richness of opera lyrics. Through hands-on activities, attendees will learn to pronounce and sing some phrases, gaining an appreciation for their role in storytelling. We will also explore librettos, character development, and historical contexts, shedding light on the linguistic and cultural nuances of opera. Our workshop is carefully crafted to accommodate both opera beginners and amateurs. The workshop will be conducted in English.
