Class: Greta Feeney, ‘Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Opera But Were Afraid To Ask’

August 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Curious about opera? Greta Feeney, who performs, studies and teaches voice and opera, breaks down all you need to know about this fascinating and venerated musical art.
Feeney separates the works by time period, discussing their history and backstory, and those who write and sing them (and a bit of gossip too). This will be a dynamic discussion, aided by the use of videos and guided by Greta’s expert insight into opera.This is a two part class, the second session will be held Friday, August 9 at 10 am.
Greta, a Nantucket native, is a graduate of The Julliard School, holds a doctoral degree from SUNY Stonybrook, where she studied how Marian cults influenced the operas of Giuseppe Verdi. She debuted as a performer at age 21 with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and participated in more than 20 productions with the San Francisco Opera. She also perform regularly in the Atheneum’s Great Hall.
