Today’s episode is recorded from a live pre-performance lecture that was given on December 14th by one of the Guild’s in-house lecturers and artistic consultants, Jane Marsh. Ms. Marsh is a celebrated Soprano who has sung countless opera roles all over the world, and brings a unique wealth of experience and knowledge to each of her lectures. This lecture is one of over 80 live educational events that are hosted at the Met Opera Guild this season, and as a pre-performance lecture it was given immediately prior to a Met performance of Die Fledermaus, where a majority of attendees continued on to the opera afterwards.
