2016 The Art of Opera Wall Calendar


Born four centuries ago in Italy and initially only for nobility, opera has been as dramatic offstage as on: battles over censorship, theaters twice and thrice burned to the ground, long-sought discoveries, and controversy over its very beginning. This calendar details nearly two hundred milestones in opera’s history. The openings of storied theaters and opera companies, first performances of celebrated and influential operas, and birthdates of notable composers, performers, and librettists are included. You’ll find a mix of the popular and obscure, everything from a Mozart cat duet or a beloved moment involving Elmer Fudd, to the premiere of Beethoven’s only opera or Bru¨nnhilde's last word.
