Tuning in to Opera

Tuning in to Opera

Do you puzzle at the passion some people feel for opera? Or do you want to find others who share that passion? This course brings a variety of experience in and around opera, for beginners and buffs, doubters and divas, low and high brows. Its website, at http://opera.prettyhill.org, is updated weekly during the course, with new resources and online performances.
Like opera, its content varies, providing a feast for the senses! Sessions combine learning, listening, DVD viewing, discussion and reflection on drama, music, acting, singing and theatrical staging. We collaboratively study the varied work of particular composers, viewing their operas to compare productions and the different presentations of major roles by great singers, we discuss topics across operas and tune in to their themes. Our programs are scheduled to fit with live or live in HD film performances in Melbourne for those who wish to attend them.
