Local villages will have the wonderful opportunity to hear from Vivien Schweitzer, author of A Mad Love: An Introduction To Opera. Vivien will share a 60 minute interactive zoom lecture on the wonder and beauty of opera from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century. Her vivid lecture, which will include audio excerpts from the operas discussed, will draw the listener into a realm of human expression that may feel radically unfamiliar, but also feels compelling and consequential. Vivien, who grew up in Bethesda, is a NY-based music critic, reporter and pianist. She was a music critic for the New York Times from 2006-2016 and also writes about music for The Economist and The Gramophone, as well as many other publications. Co-sponsored by Bradley Hills Village and open to the public. Zoom link, Meeting ID: 893 5180 8780, passcode: 346910
