The Shorewood Senior Resource Center will present a series of programs about operatic adaptations of the works of William Shakespeare.
The first of four classes will be held Nov. 7 from 1 to 3 p.m. on the ground floor of the Shorewood Village Center, 2010 E. Shorewood Blvd.
During the course of these four sessions the presenter, Corliss Phillabaum, will discuss operatic adaptations of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Romeo and Juliet," "The Merry Wives of Windsor," "Hamlet" and even a classic Broadway musical based on "The Taming of the Shrew."
Phillabaum is a UW-Milwaukee emeritus professor of theatre who has directed operatic productions there for 20 years, and presented pre-curtain talks for the Florentine Opera Milwaukee for more than two decades.
Course costs run $6 per class or $20 for the four-week series for residents; $8 per class or $28 for the series for non-residents.
