Enjoy and learn about opera using DVDs and lectures. Puccini's "Tosca" will be featured in two classes. The first stars soprano Angela Gheorghiu in the title role along with tenor Jonas Kaufmann; the second features the legendary soprano Maria Callas and the baritone Tito Gobbi.
In other classes, Anna Netrebko and Piotr Beczala will sing selections from Wagner's "Lohengrin." Four international stars will present a concert from Baden Baden. LSU musicologist Andreas Giger will present a class on Verdi's "Les Vêpres siciliennes." One class will be determined later.
