He inspired Mozart. He commissioned Haydn. He was the best fencer and the most virtuosic violinist of his time. He led a battalion of 1,000 soldiers to fight for equality in the French Revolution. And he was Black! Let’s get a head-start on the composer of the next opera performed live by LA Opera this November!

This talk is part three of a trilogy of opera talks wherein Ray Busmann tells us the fascinating stories of some game-changing personalities in history that he (and probably we all) would never have heard about if it weren’t for opera.
