Opera on Film with Christopher Purdy

No tux required, and neither do you have to be a classical music expert to enjoy our Opera on Film program at the Library. Our own music oficiando, Dr. Christopher Purdy, Classical 101 host and producer, will provide expert information and opinion about each of the four operas we are screening this summer. We kickoff the series with Gaetano Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda. This searingly dramatic opera is based on Friedrich Schiller’s play about the last few days in the life of Mary, Queen of Scots. 138 min.
