Eminent lecturers and opera singers inform and entertain during these carefully constructed, intensive courses on everything one needs to know about opera, and its musical, social and performance history. A rare opportunity to study the world of opera with in-depth lectures illustrated by live performances. (Composers and librettists are studied in their historical and sociological contexts. The great emblematic operas of the period are analysed and put in context. A respected director discusses the historic and contemporary approaches to staging of the operas. Meanwhile, an international opera star working with young opera singers highlights the training of the operatic voice, authentic performance approaches and vocal technique. Also on Wed and Thur.)
