    Studying famous opera pieces, will effectively help you build new vocabulary, as the memorization of the music facilitates the memorization of the words.  Please join ICC native Italian instructor, Mirella Heimpel, to discover Italian opera, and learn more about Italian cultural heritage.

    Mirella will be the guide as students discover Verdi, and learn the story of his famous opera, "La Traviata". Students will follow along and listen to the opera, pausing to learn new vocabulary and memorizing the most famous arias.  During the last lesson, the class will view a video of "La Traviata", and will follow along with the music learned along the way.  You will enjoy this opera as you never have before!

    Class will meet, in suite 502 of the Hennepin Center for the Arts Building, for four weeks, beginning on Monday, November 17, from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m.  The final session will meet until 8 p.m., in order to view the entire video. Participants must have attained intermediate Italian skills, or have completed at least the equivalent of an Intermediate 1 class.  There is no musical, or singing, experience required.

    Please bring your own Traviata libretto, or purchase a copy prior to the start of class.  The suggested libretto is from the Black Dog Opera Library, and it includes an English translation, and the complete opera in 2 CDs.  This is conducted by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
