LALW410 Opera and the fusion of the Arts 3 cr.

What is opera? German composer Richard Wagner
described it as a “total art work,” combining music, drama, singing, and scenic design. The course encourages new ways of thinking about the relationships between different artistic disciplines and forms. The class will watch and discuss a selection of operas from the seventeenth through twentieth centuries. No classical music background is required, and no one will be expected to sing! For the final project, which will combine artwork and critical writing, students will imagine and design a production for an opera of their choice.

Prerequisites: LALW200
