Opera 2

The Devil Is in the Details

Friday, February 4, 2022, 10am
John and Jeanne Rowe Performance and Learning Center
Fred Plotkin, lecturer

Sometimes the best music in an opera, symphony or Broadway musical belongs to the bad guy. Using selections of music that are wickedly fun or darkly evocative, Fred Plotkin will plumb the depths of why, sometimes, that which is evil is irresistible — at least in music.
