M- Opera Group 1 & 2

Each month we choose an opera and view excerpts from a video. We look at the background of the writing of the opera, discover its story and comment on what the music tells us about the characters and how it is used to enhance the drama. We also comment on the production we are seeing, sometimes irreverently!

If any member would like to volunteer to lead a session about an opera of their choosing, their contribution will be welcome.

There are two groups which broadly follow the same programme which will be published on the website - link on the right. NOTE: 2nd group no longer running from December 2019.
