  1. Operatic partnerships of Mozart and Strauss
    Course start date:  Mon 15 Jan 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. Tutor: Professor Raymond Holden [external website].
