The famed Italian composer, Giacomo Puccini, didn’t just write operas; he lived them. His private life was as colorful as his operas and sprinkled with shocking adulterous escapades. He said of himself: “I am a mighty hunter of wild fowl, operatic librettos and attractive women.”

Erika Reitshamer is an engaging teacher whose knowledge and love of opera will inspire all, and his 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 38 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 Newton Lifelong Learning. Her last offering for Edgewood was “A Tribute to Opera Legend Maria Callas.”
