As a prelude to the Princeton Symphony Orchestra’s Jan. 27 Classical Series concert, “A Mozart Interlude,” Wendy Heller, professor of music at Princeton University and opera specialist, discusses the relationship between Mozart the opera composer and Mozart the symphonist. To what extent do we hear the comedy, drama, and pathos of operas such as “The Marriage of Figaro” in Mozart’s symphonies? How might an understanding of the complex representation of humanity in “Figaro” (conflicts involving class, gender, and politics) help us better penetrate the seemingly abstract world of the symphonies?

Co-sponsored by the library and Princeton Symphony Orchestra.

    It was a great lecture. I was inspired. A great idea. If she is an example of how good the faculty at Princeton is, parents shouldn't mind spending 60,000 dollars a year for their kids education. It's only money.
