How I Got Left at the Opera: A Boy's Journey into Politics with Mozart, Wagner and Verdi
Friday, March 16 at 4pm

Join Fred Plotkin for his multi-media lecture to discover how operas can fire the imagination and become the soundtrack for people who want to fight the good fight
Fred Plotkin, one of the world's leading opera experts, grew up in New York in an era when rock, soul, blues, folk and Broadway music were in the air at the same time as classical music and opera. A city kid such as Fred could hear Zero Mostel one night, Pete Seeger the next, and Leonard Bernstein the next. In this period of anti-war protests, civil rights marches, and the rise of environmentalism and the women's movement, music served to inspire activism. While most people found inspiration in popular music, Fred encountered these ideals in opera. Join Fred Plotkin to discover how operas such as Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, Beethoven's Fidelio, Wagner's Ring Cycle, Verdi's Don Carlo and Giordano's Andrea Chénier can fire the imagination and become the soundtrack for people who want to fight the good fight. In a presentation full of music and drama, Fred will also explore why opera appeals to people across the political spectrum and get them talking.
Approx. Running Time: 90 minutes
