FREE Special Events IN DC

This spring Opera Lafayette presents a number of programs created for the community speaking to dangerous love as an aspect of mythology, and used by early opera composers to create uniquely dramatic characters.

The program leads the audience from antiquity, through the French Revolution, to understand how early music grappled with madness, grief, and the extreme follies of dangerous love.

Events feature Ryan Brown and Tom Minter, a playwright and Teaching Artist with performances by Raquel Gonzalez, soprano and Kathy Detwiler, piano.

Join us for these exciting excursions in music, drama, and the operatic elements of classical theater.
