As part of the 2012-13 Haydn Quartet Slam, the CCP presents Haydn at the Opera.
Franz Josef Haydn was known as the "Papa" of the string quartet as well as of the symphony.
Haydn wrote over 104 symphonies, 83 string quartets and many operas.
Haydn at the Opera draws from quartets that echo Haydn's vocal style of writing.
