Helena was a master - she was organized, knew exactly what she wanted to do, was prepared to include appropriate videos. And, clearly, she knew her material.
It was a real treat to participate as Helena shared her deep experience and obvious affection for operatic theater. I felt very lucky to have this opportunity!

Loved this class - fascinating information, very well organized, excellent use of technology, great stories, a natural teacher!
Helena worked so hard to prepare for this class. Every minute was enjoyable. I learned so much. If a second class were offered - I would definitely enroll.
