The City Lit Opera School joins the Shakespeare celebrations

The year-long course for singers preparing for conservatoires or entering the profession includes staged workshop performances at the end of each term.  The spring term show this year celebrates the anniversary of the death of the most famous and the most performed playwright in the world.  Shakespeare’s plays have long been popular subjects for opera composers, from Amleto (Hamlet) to Der Widerspänstigen Zähmung (the Taming of the Shrew).  Falstaff at the opera, staged scenes from Verdi’s Falstaff, will be performed at the Jack Lyon Theatre within the City Lit on April 5 and 6, adding to the worldwide events and activities marking this 400th anniversary.
