Stanway in Colchester

Lang/Lit/Music - Opera Appreciation

IMPORTANT NOTICE - Meetings of this group are currently taking place via Zoom due to Coronavirus.

This Group usually meets in Stanway, on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month, but in practice this can vary. Meetings are always held on Fridays with a 2pm start and they usually finish around 4.30pm or 5pm, very occasionally longer.

The Group watch a complete opera on DVD during the afternoon with a tea break during one of the intervals. There is time to ask questions about the opera and the performance we are watching. The Group convener is very knowledgeable on all aspects of opera, historical context, composers, conductors, performers and the productions.

There is no need to have any opera DVDs yourself or have any special knowledge. However, all Group members are keen opera fans and have experienced live performances as well as going to opera films. Since the Group started, we have been able to watch works of each major opera composer in turn from early Handel to Puccini. As of July 2016, we are watching the operas of Mozart.

There are one or two vacancies and we welcome new members who can come to meetings regularly so we can learn as a group. Please email the Group contact person using the Bluebird contact button at the side of the page for further information or to express interest in joining the group.
