Great Lakes Light Opera
Professional Company



Show Description:
What do Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, Looney Tunes, British Airways, Apocalypse Now, The Marx Brothers and Citizen Kane opera have in common? Opera, of course! Opera is woven into the fabric of American popular culture, whether we realize it or not. This lecture draws attention to the ways in which the music and the plots of operas have become part of our everyday life. From The Simpsons to James Bond, we explore the best and worst references and homages to opera. This lecture is appropriate for both opera buffs and novices alike. We watch clips, listen to recordings and even hear a live opera singer perform these beloved tunes.
