The Chorus throughout Opera History—Part 2
Presented by Naomi Barrettara

Verdi included a chorus in all of his most popular operas; Wagner felt that the opera chorus lacked dramatic function and deliberately excluded it in his later works. Today, composers use the chorus in a variety of innovative ways. This lecture will focus on how the use of the opera chorus has changed, both dramatically and musically, from the Romantic era to the present day.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Opera Boot Camp: Introduction to the Opera Chorus, please click here.
