Opera History Courses

Modern Opera: from Schoenberg to Adès

Modern opera began at the same time as recording technology and would change dramatically from its previous 300 years of history, owing partly to the influences of the atonal movement. It also began to address the complexities of modern life and the new sounds of the urban landscape. During this course we explore the development of opera in the 20th century through the works of Schoenberg, Berg, Stravinsky, Britten and Philip Glass, among others.
