Opera Lectures Return With A New Host
Ross Alley explores how music conveys emotion from arias to duets
Opera lovers in Chiswick have received some good news with the announcement that a new host has been found for the regular series of lectures.
Barry Jobling, who had been presenting talks on opera for the last 15 years, was forced to stand down due to ill-health forcing him to move to Spain.
In a new ten-week series Ross Alley (former music lecturer at Birkbeck College) takes over. He has given numerous guest lectures for the Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Wigmore Hall, the Wagner Society, the Gustav Mahler Society, and NADFAS. He will begin an exploration of how music conveys emotion, followed by an investigation into the standard operatic structures to enhance your opera enjoyment.
The second half will uncover the marvels of Puccini's magic touch.
The lectures take place at St Michael & All Angels, Bath Road.
1 October: "Opera as expression - the language of music"
