In conjunction with the performances, the Program in Italian Studies will present an afternoon symposium on the opera on Saturday, January 13, 2018 from 1:00-6:00PM, including a round table featuring the production team, presentations on the opera and its context by the graduate students in Professor Wendy Heller's graduate seminar Music 515: Origins of Opera.   The symposium will be followed by a reception.
