Join Ray Scheindlin, a member of Delaware Valley Opera's chorus and retired Literature Professor, for an introduction to Gian Carlo Menotti's The Medium.

Scheindlin will discuss the opera’s characters, especially Madame Flora (the medium of the title) and the ways in which the opera combines music and text to create a vivid portrait of this troubled and troubling human being; and to blur the boundary between the real and supernatural worlds.
