Come meet Bel Canto Boot Camp in person! In collaboration with Guild Hall of East Hampton, BCBC explores this fall's Met: Live in HD repertoire. Bel Canto Boot Camp aims to unite the rich traditions of the past with the exciting productions in today's opera house.
Join BCBC co-founders Rachelle Jonck and Derrick Goff as they explore the rich tradition of Russian choral singing. In operas with political plots the chorus provides the social context in which the action takes place. Many voices together provide the voice of different nations, peoples, and social classes, sometimes wanting different outcomes. The chorus paints the picture of what the people believe, think, and want.
This program is presented in tandem with The Met: Live in HD screening of Boris Gudonov (encore screening). A complimentary coffee from our eAT Coffee Bar will be available for all participants between the lecture and screening.
