Café Culturel - French Grand Opera and Ravel

$16.00 USD

Description:

Join us for this exceptional Café Culturel in partnership with the Boulder Opera. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about French opera composers and their works. Opera singers from the Boulder Opera will give us a presentation on the history of French Opera. 
In this session, we will listen to  some of the most important French opera works, and specifically focus on the works of Maurice Ravel. A performer from the Boulder Opera will also sing some pieces from French Operas. This event will be held at the International School of Denver (ISD). Please make sure you come from the entrance located on 206 Red Cross Way Denver, CO 80230, as there will be no one to let you in at ISD main entrance.  



Later in December, the Boulder Opera will bring the enchanting L’enfant et les sortilèges (The Child and the Spells: A Lyric Fantasy in Two Parts) by Ravel with stage direction by Dana Kinney, and music direction by Steven Aguiló-Arbues.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

I'd like to start this off by thanking you for teaching me so much French. You were a great teacher and you helped me learn so many new things. I'd also like to apologize for missing a lot of lessons, although I'm sure that I would've rather gone to them. Again, you are the best teacher I've ever had, and it's sad to say goodbye to you.

Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home.

A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills.

Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this "old dog" to learn new tricks, but we could not go slower. It has been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.

A great place to learn and practice French while getting acquainted with French culture and interesting people. I definitely recommend AFD and their events. Je parle français! Et vous?
