About The Instructor

Giuseppe Albanese attended the University of Vermont and graduated with a degree in History in 1966. Signor Albanese's enthusiasm for opera was inspired in the early eighties upon seeing Franco Zeffierelli's film version of the classic Verdi opera, "La Traviata." After five years of intensive research and study, he developed a dynamic educational program entitled, "The Joy of Opera," an introduction to Bel-Canto. For the past 25 years he has taught this uniquely informative course, lectured extensively on many operative subjects, and produced a series of exceptional video documentaries.

Giuseppe Albanese currently presents opera courses at Florida Atlantic University's Lifelong Learning Society; one of the largest continuing adult education programs in the country. He is the recipient of Lifelong Learning Society 2000 Excellence in Teaching Award, and continues to gain recognition as one of the most stimulating instructors in opera education today. 

Maestro Albanese is available for lectures, seminars, and program development.
