CPCC Opera Theatre presents Battle of the Composers: VERDI vs. WAGNER

Friday, April 10th at 8 p.m.

 

Dale F. Halton Theater, Overcash Building

 

As America well knows, battles between the North and South are not uncommon, and the operatic world has its own North and South conflict.  Only this conflict was born North and South of the Swiss Alps.  The Italian composer, Giuseppe Verdi and the German composer, Richard Wagner defined the Romantic Period of Opera.  They were born in the same year, were both renowned composers during their lifetimes, and are both operatic legends; but that is where the similarities end.  Join CPCC Opera Theatre as we battle it out between these two operatic greats!
