The Palm Springs Opera Guild will present the first in a series of lectures on opera at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 24 at the Rancho Mirage Library, 71100 Hwy 111, Rancho Mirage, CA. The three-part series is themed “Who’s Afraid of Opera?”

San Francisco Opera’s Dramaturg Emeritus Kip Cranna will share his 40 years of experience as he explores the wonderful world of opera, using video examples (with English subtitles) to illustrate how opera got started and how it continues to have such power to stir our souls and touch our hearts. No previous experience necessary. Just watch, listen, and enjoy.
