San Diego Opera Podcast - Opera 101: I've Heard This Before

...and we've all heard the comment, "I've heard that opera before, seen it many times, I don't need to go again."

Let Dr. Nicolas Reveles, our Director of Education & Outreach set you straight, using as an example the climactic phrases from "Vesti la giubba", Canio's aria in Leoncavallo's opera, Pagliacci. You may start re-thinking how you approach an opera season that may contain one of those 'standard' operas!
