I took Baroque and Classical Opera with Professor Bloechl. At first I was intimidated with the class, but I loved it! The professor is pleasant, prepares selections to be played on piano for the class, and has video clips of the operas which I loved watching. She allows a break which allows the class to go by quickly. It is not a boring class by any means. The material is so interesting, the operas are beautiful to listen to, and the readings aren't too overwhelming. You listen to an opera every other week. The midterm and final were fairly graded but the quizzes (two for the quarter) are a little harsh.

For exams, be sure to review the readings, the class notes, practice the listening and review the vocabulary and you will do well! The key to this class is making sure you understand the material. If not, go to the TA's or professor for help.

This class is a lot of work but well worth it in the end. There are no papers thankfully but this class will keep you busy. Overall, the class was fairly graded, the exams were manageable, the professor was an excellent lecturer, the TA was wonderful, and the class was always interesting. The professor is always welcoming and allows us to ask questions--she is always approachable as are her T.A.'s. I highly recommend this class! :)
