Discussion guest speaker: Fred Plotkin

Anna Netrebko revives her sensational turn as Norina—the disguised bride who becomes a greedy old man’s undoing—in Donizetti's bel canto comedy, opposite Matthew Polenzani, Mariusz Kwiecien, and John Del Carlo in the title role. The New York Times wrote of Netrebko: “She has the stage presence, the charisma, that the old-fashioned divas used to command, and she adds to it both charm and sensuality.” Music director James Levine conducts.

Fred Plotkin is one of America’s foremost opera experts. Author of Opera 101: A Complete Guide to Learning and Loving Opera and eight other books, writes for Opera News and The New York Times, and leads opera tours in New York and Europe.
