Inside Opera: Why does it matter?
A new on-line course Inside Opera: Why does it matter? has been developed by The Royal Opera House, the Victoria & Albert Museum and King’s College London. Available from today (4 June 2018), the course is led by Dr Flora Willson, a specialist in 19th century opera and Lecturer in Music at King’s College, London. The course is open to all and no prior knowledge is needed. Running for four weeks, it will give students an insight into the main musical and dramatic features of opera, the major roles in a production, the technological developments within the genre, opera around the world, how opera has changed over the past four centuries and what opera has to offer to 21st century audiences. The course is intended to encouarage discussion about opera and how it continues to develop and diversify as an art form.
