Courses – Fall 2022 / Old Courses / MOZART’S WOMEN
Coordinators: Larry Shapiro, Linda Downs
We think of Mozart’s father as the dominant influence in his life, but there’s more to the story. Inspired by Jane Glover’s book of the same title, Mozart’s Women will look beyond the stereotype of a child genius dominated by his father to show how Mozart’s life and music were shaped by his relationships with women, from the first efforts of a child composer to the great “dark comedy” operas, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and Cosi Fan Tutte. The course will blend biography, history and music.
