Opera For The People
Event detail
Add to my calendar

Larry Oppenheim of Opera for the People will tell and show—with film clips--the essence of The Marriage of Figaro, preparing us to understand and enjoy the plot, characters, and themes of Mozart’s warmest and wisest comedy. In one ‘crazy day’, a Countess schemes with two clever servants to humble her cheating husband, the Count. The Marriage of Figaro is to be performed by the San Francisco Opera October 11 through November 1.

Larry Oppenheim's goal is to make opera more enjoyable and accessible to the average person--including those who may never have gone to an opera. An oboist, Larry was president of the Kensington Symphony Orchestra (East Bay) from July 2008 to June 2016. Back by popular acclaim, Mr. Oppenheim has given eleven previous opera talks at West Portal.
