Greenberg, Robert


The world has never known a performing art as beloved as opera. For more than 400 years, it has been the premier performing art. Geniuses-the likes of Monteverdi, Mozart, Verdi, Wagner, and Puccini-produced some of the landmark artistic achievements of all time in this form. Have you ever watched someone listening rapturously to an aria? How they seem to go into a trance when the music and singing swells? You may think that listening to and understanding opera may be far beyond your comprehension. Not so! With Professor Greenberg to show you how, you can learn to understand, appreciate-even to love-opera in just 24 hours of lectures-lectures that are a pleasure to hear. In this enjoyable and enlightening course, you will trace the history of opera from its beginning in the early 17th century to the early 20th century.Greenberg, Robert is the author of 'How to Listen to and Understand Opera', published 1997 under ISBN 9781565854772 and ISBN 1565854772.
