MUSA 3220 Opera (Fall: 3 )
In this course we will look at how text and music combine to relate a drama, concentrating on five representative masters of the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries--Monteverdi, Handel, Mozart, Verdi, and Wagner. This course will take excursions into other works--the operas created for the court of Louis XIV, the vocal pyrotechnics of the Italian golden age of singing, the spectacle of French grand opera, and the operatic qualities of the modern Broadway musical.
