We hope everyone is doing well, staying healthy, and enjoying the incredible weather while socially distancing.
We’re very excited to announce that beginning this Sunday, 24th of May, we’ll be hosting an opera series, Mozart: The Lorenzo da Ponte Operas.
But you may be asking yourself, “How do Italian operas by Mozart tie in with Columbia University?” The da Ponte Operas are named for opera librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, the first Professor of Italian at Columbia College in 1825 at the age of 76. During the series, we’ll be joined by Columbia Professor Elaine Sisman, Music Humanities Chair for two sessions.
You can register for each event separately (below) but hope you’ll be able to join us for all of them. Each opera will be available online for 7 days so you can watch at your convenience.
And as always we’re hosting, Tea Time at 4pm on Friday which is open to all Columbia Alumni.
