About this Item
What Do You Know About Opera? A Quiz Deck by Matthew Hoch. A magical flute, a ring forged by a dwarf, and a consumptive seamstress—such are the everyday ingredients of opera. To transmute such material into great art, the masters of the medium—composers, librettists, and singers—fold ripe melodies around dramatic action. The results will endure as long as beauty is adored. Dip into this card-based compendium of opera lore and you’ll emerge well-versed. For all those who’ve ever wondered what bel canto, high C’s, and da capo were all about, this deck’s for you. And once he’s introduced the greatest of operas and operatic composers, Matthew Hoch points the way to a deeper understanding with reading, listening, and viewing suggestions. These 48 cards, questions on one side and answers on the other, shine a dazzling spotlight on the most passionate of the arts. Matthew Hoch is Assistant Professor of Music at Shorter College. Includes listening suggestions. With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information--all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards. Size: 3 1/4 x 4".
