Drinking Songs in Opera

David Collins, Speaker

Libiamo!

Even though January is nearing an end, it is never too late to celebrate a New Year.

And what better way than with song - song from opera - and especially Drinking Songs.

These songs appear in tragic as well as comic operas. Sopranos, altos, tenors, basses, and the chorus all love to raise their voices in praise of drink, especially wine and beer.

So let’s enjoy the music and celebrate the New Year!
