Courses / Art, Music, Dance and Film / CONTEMPORARY OPERA

Coordinators: Steve Koenig, Victor Brener, Frieda Lipp

At each session we view a different opera and engage in a lively discussion of the text, staging, medium, and the historical and cultural backgrounds. This semester may include Harry Somers’ Louis Rielm, Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah, Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos, Ernst Krenek’s Karl V., Rued Langaard’s AntiKrist, and Benjamin Britten’s Billy Budd.
