Following the 2016 U3A season of ‘Opera on the Dark Side’, a monthly opera will be offered to those interested in following mostly popular traditional operas, including Mozart, Puccini, Verdi, Donizetti, Strauss etc. We can stray into some modern twentieth century operas in the 2nd half of the year e.g. Ravel, Debussy, Vaughan Williams, Bartok, Glass etc. DVDs of the best possible versions will be screened with subtitles in English and participants will receive a synopsis of the story in the week prior to screening. Limited to 10 participants.
Opera - four wonderful seasons with Meg Dillon
'Opera - On the Dark Side' (2016)
'In the Mood for Opera' (which included 19th Century favourties) (2017)
'Exploring New Operas' (when most operas were based on twentieth century novels or events') (2018)
'A Night at the Opera - French Style', which explored some of the great nineteenth century French composers like Berlioz, Debussy, Ravel and Poulenc who were interested in opera as a musical form. Lovely arias, tuneful music, great singers and performances. (2019)
Scroll through these pages to enjoy, and for those who attended, reminisce about, four courses offered by Meg Dillon, supported by Terry, at their home, DVDs of the best possible versions were screened with subtitles in English. Limited to 10 members, participants received a synopsis of the story in the week prior to screening.
