M- Opera Group

On or about the second Wednesday of the month, the leader suggests an opera which people can watch on line. Background notes are made available outlining special features of the opera and giving a synopsis of the plot. Members of the group are advised by email when a new opera becomes available. Full details are published on our web page - link is on the right.

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! Members may volunteer to lead a session about an opera of their choosing. New members are always welcome to join us.
