MUS325: Contemporary Opera Performance

Instructor(s): 
Course Info

This course presents a rare opportunity to get a close-up experience of a professional production of a new opera. Andrew Lovett's one-act opera The Analysing Engine will be performed in November. Contributing to this activity will be the main focus of the first part of the course. Alongside this we will look at examples of chamber operas since 1945, such as Britten's The Turn of the Screw and Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti. We will think about how music and drama are combined to create a unified artistic work. The course is aimed at anyone interested in opera, composing (or writing) or opera/theater production.
