Event Details

Description

The opera La Juive (The Jewess) by Fromental Halvy and its historical context will be the subject of this lecture by Professor Judith Etzion. When La Juive premiered in Paris in 1835, it was one of the most provocative and influential grand operas of the time.
We will break for refreshments midway.
Professor Etzion, who holds a Ph.D from Columbia University, is known for her ability to meld music, art and social history into an engrossing and enlightening presentation. She has enjoyed a distinguished career as a musicologist and conducted adult education courses in music appreciation for the past 30 years. Locally, Dr. Etzion has taught at a number of universities and municipal organizations.
