Opera History Courses

A History of Germanic Opera

German & Austrian operas are without doubt some of the most dramatic and exciting musical genres. During this course we focus on the development of opera from the Baroque era and the works of Telemann, to the great achievements of Mozart at the end of the 18th century; and in the next century, from Beethoven’s Fidelio, to the Wagnerian music dramas, the works of Richard Strauss and the modernistic output of Schoenberg and Alban Berg.
