Opera Highlights at the University of Hawaii

Lynne’s opera lectures are a must for my wife, Anny, and me.  Her insights are artistically, technically and historically stimulating . . . her enthusiasm infectious. She delivers her messages with humor, wit and accessibility.  They enrich our enjoyment through understanding.  But beware – they may turn you into an Opera geek!  —Steve Turner
