Edgewood Auditorium
575 Osgood Street
North Andover, MA

Come and explore Giuseppe Verdi’s Grand Opera: AIDA. Aida takes place in ancient Egypt. There are pharaohs, impassioned princesses, oppressed slaves and heaps of spectacles, including a Triumphal March. A truly Grand Opera! But Verdi’s ultimate goal was the expression of human drama. HD-transmission: October 6, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Even if you are familiar with the opera, this lecture will give you a fresh and in-depth appreciation of this masterpiece.

Erika Reitshamer is an engaging teacher whose knowledge and love of opera will inspire all, and her open style and sense of humor are irresistible. She has lectured on opera and great singers of opera for many years and was active in the formation of the Boston Lyric Opera Company more than 40 years ago. She is a board member of the New England Opera Club, former Vice President of the Boston Wagner Society and teacher of opera appreciation for LLARC at Regis College, for WISE at Assumption College and Sherborn Lifetime Learning. Her last offering for Edgewood was “Opera is COOL: Scandinavian Opera Houses and Nordic Opera Singers”.
