Roots of Rock ’n’ Roll, Part III

Virtual

This three-session virtual course taught by Kit O’Toole explores the question – just what is rock?

British Music Hall, Blue Beat (predecessor to ska and reggae), swamp pop, the avant garde, and more will be explored In addition to multimedia presentations, class discussion and activities will enable attendees to identify elements of these genres in the Beatles’ music.

$50 (for three sessions)

Fedora

Pollak Theatre

Giordano’s exhilarating drama Fedora returns to the Met for the first time in 25 years, starring soprano Sonya Yoncheva in the title role of the 19th-century princess who falls in love with her fiancé’s murderer, Count Loris, sung by tenor Piotr Beczała. Soprano Rosa Feola is the Countess Olga, Fedora’s confidante, and baritone Artur Ruciński is the diplomat De Siriex. Marco Armiliato conducts David McVicar’s intricate production, with a fixed set that unfolds to reveal the opera’s settings: a palace in St. Petersburg, a fashionable Parisian salon, and a picturesque villa in the Swiss Alps.

$23 (adult); $21 (senior); $10 (child); $5 (MU student)
