DIVAS

 

We want to break down walls. Blow up niche marketing. We'll begin with Grace Slick singing White Rabbit. We'll alternate between musical selections and discussion by a female artist from Minnesota Opera. She'll discuss a little history, technique and aesthetics. We'll continue with more examples of virtuosic singing by women. We'll modulate from popular music to jazz to the light Italian opera repertoire and end with Wagner -- the Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde and the Immolation Scene from Twilight of the Gods when the world ends. . .
