Excellent course. Very interesting and educational to me. A big Thank you to Professor Swayne and everyone. I took this class just for fun and to enhance my learning experience when I attend an opera, particularly German Opera like the Ring. I told all my friends and family about this class and how satisfied I am. I went back to browse at the archived Italian Opera class. It was also great!
