MUHI 4345 - Survey of Opera History

Description
A chronological survey of opera, beginning with a brief introduction to medieval and Renaissance precedents, followed by an in-depth presentation of selected Baroque and Classical masterworks. Explores the ways 19th-century Romantic opera synthesized music, literature, art, and elements of politics and culture. Also, investigates the musical language and dramatic substance of selected works from 20th-century operatic repertoire. Students spend a significant amount of time viewing operas on video and laser disc, and in certain cases making comparative studies of productions. Prerequisite: MUHI 3302.
