Captivated by imagery of sultans, shahs, slaves, saints, and scarves, European audiences sought escape in the seemingly exotic cultures of Egypt, Morocco, and Persia in the late 19th century. Musicologist Kevin Salfen, University of the Incarnate Word, offers an informative lecture with live performances from various operas including Carmen, which Opera San Antonio premiers October 27.
