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 Mezzo-Sopranos: From best friends to feisty heroines, femme-fatales to goddesses, the mezzo-soprano voice has been used to represent some of the most famous characters in opera from Carmen to Delilah, Amneris to Fricka. These characters have also been assigned some of opera's greatest music and they have been performed by some of the greatest singers, from Ebe Stignani to Marilyn Horne, Rise Stevens to Cecila Bartoli.

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