Enhance your Experience
El Paso Opera wants you to make the most of your Opera experience. Here are our suggestions to enhance your experience:
- Read the libretto â€“We want you to enjoy the singing and the acting on stage free from the distraction of trying to figure out the plot line. Reading the libretto will help you see what the show is about. Amazon.com has many librettos for sale, and you may even find a copy at your local library.
- Listen to a recording â€“ Unless you are a frequent opera patron, you may not know whether a performance was â€śgoodâ€ť or â€śbadâ€ť. Listening to a great recording of the opera prior will help you train your opera palate. El Paso Opera strives to produce high quality shows and strive for the level of top recordings. It will also give you a feel for the musical style of the show.
- Research the history â€“ What was the impetus that made this composer write this opera? What was going on historically around him? Even just a little insight into the historical facts of the time period an opera was written or even the time period in which it was set can make the experience that much more enriching.
