    Sir Charles Mackerras was one of most significant and influential artists of the last seventy years. After winning a scholarship to study in Prague in 1947, he became besotted by all things Czech and was determined to become a champion of that country’s music. He later proudly described himself as an ‘honorary Czech’ and was often at his artistic happiest when working with singers and musicians from the Czech and Slovak republics.

    Course start date:  Mon 15 Jul 2024

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Although active during two very different historical periods, the operatic partnerships of Mozart and da Ponte and Strauss and Hofmannsthal have much in common. Not only were they seminal in shaping the perception and reception of the lyric theatre during their own lifetimes, but they created a series of theatrical masterpieces that continue to dominate the world’s major operatic stages.
