Ever wondered how opera and film are related, or why “Viva Verdi!” became a rallying cry for Italian pride? Through the past four centuries, operas have both reflected and informed the political and cultural moments in which they were conceived. This winter, Dramaturg Jonathan Dean leads a survey of four centuries of history through the unique lens of opera. Beginning with the earliest operas at the end of the 16th century and continuing through the 21st, this course is great for aspiring history buffs. With a focus on the teams of artists that created these collaborative works, you’ll come away with new context and appreciation for the art form.

The online course will take place in a series of ten weeknight sessions, each covering a historical era. You’ll discover how we can use opera to learn more about diverse topics from the French Revolution to the splitting of the atom, and finally how living composers continue to respond to and shape our society.
