Opera Lecture Series – Great Operatic Basses

Explore the fascinating world of opera with popular opera lecturer Murray Dahm.

Since 2003, Opera Bites Co-Founder Murray Dahm has delivered accessible, friendly and informative lectures, drawing on its history, culture and music.

Join him as he explores a variety of areas of operatic history from composers and voice types through to genres and quirky bits of opera history, utilising his extensive (and ever-growing!) CD and DVD collection.

Great Operatic Basses and Baritones: From villains to buffoons, philosophers to kings and even gods, basses and baritones feature in almost every opera. Whether the voice of reason, comedy or crime, the distinct dark tones of the bass and baritone voice colour many of our ideas about how opera should be performed from Dr Dulcamara to Scarpia, Zarastro to the Devil. The music for these voices is among opera's most famous and these roles have been performed by some of the greatest performers.

Join us for this course where we will examine opera’s most famous basses and baritones and the roles they have sung. The course will make extensive use of recordings and DVDs.
