Operas of My Time


Course description

This unique course offers a selection of six operas composed since the instructor’s birth 60 years ago, each one chosen for its ability to speak strongly to him.

Although most operas composed during this time—in fact, most "classical" works, period—are still considered "modern," Robert will demonstrate that music theatre works which have a modern idiom can still be intensely gripping, dramatic experiences, and that the musical styles of operas composed during the past 60 years are remarkably diverse.

We'll explore the historical context of each composition, first performance, etc., and in a couple of cases, compare with other, similar settings of stories. DVDs of performances will be shown.
