- with Ricardo Panela (baritone)
Following Ricardo’s previous lecture on ‘Trouble at the Opera’ which looked at censorship on the development of opera up to the 19th century, this morning we will travel to Germany, Russia, Italy and Portugal and explore how some of the worst dictatorships of the 20th century have undermined the creation and presentation of opera, forcing artists and composers such as Korngold, Kurt Weill and Shostakovich to become either propagandists, or face political prosecution.
- Concert Duration:
