The UI Opera Studies Forum (OSF) will continue its lecture series coordinated with the Metropolitan Opera Live in HD theatre screenings with a talk on Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale” Thursday, Oct. 28, presented by Katherine Eberle. All lectures take place at 5:30 p.m. in the University Capitol Centre conference seminar room 2520D and are free and open to the public.
Eberle is a professor in the UI School of Music in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and a specialist in opera.
The lecture series is intended to guide audiences to a better understanding of the Metropolitan Opera performances, which are shown live at Sycamore Theatres in Iowa City and other venues worldwide.
Other lectures this season, all presented by UI faculty, will be on Verdi’s “Don Carlo” (Nov. 30), Puccini’s “La fanciulla del West” (Dec. 15), Gluck’s “Iphigenie en Tauride” (Feb. 21), and Verdi’s “Il trovatore” (Apr. 26).
This series is made possible with support from OSF, UI International Programs and a grant from Humanities Iowa.
