About this Event:

Academic and writer Professor Roger Parker talks about his definitive work on the entire 400-year history of opera. Parker, professor of music at King’s College London, has compiled the first single-volume history of opera in a generation. He provokes discussion of many works by the greatest composers of opera from Monteverdi, Handel and Mozart, to Verdi and Wagner, Strauss, Puccini, Berg, and Britten. And he looks at opera’s social, political and literary background, at its economic circumstances and at the polemics that have accompanied its development.
