A Passion for Opera!

Student Comments

Over the years, this course has grown from 30 students to over 200 students with a waiting list. The response has been overwhelming, and without such wonderful students who fill the auditorium each Thursday evening, sit and listen so attentively and demonstrate their emerging love of opera, I could not succeed. Thanks to you all. — Will Kent

One never knM-Butterfly-Socreows in life when you will make a strike. Your class was a memorable experience. I had a young professor at Cal in 1945 that did a “Dr. Kent Job” on Shakespeare that I never forgot. Thanks again.

Will is knowledgeable and well prepared. His passion for opera is infectious.

Dr. Kent is very organized. His love for Opera and his weekly presentation was far and above what I expected. Bravo!

Just what I wanted as an in depth introduction with lots of arias. Informative, delightful and well thought out.

You’re doing a great job! Both your lectures, especially the occasional readings (composer’s letters) and handouts are very much appreciated.

Thank you ever so much for your fine course and for bringing me back to the Opera! That which I took for granted so many years ago, I have just now come to realize that I did indeed witness those “golden years” at the War Memorial. I am looking forward to your next course.

No improvement needed. Maintaining the incomparable quality of the 4 courses we’ve attended would be challenging enough!
