Event description

Description

The V&A’s exhibition, ‘Opera: Passion, Power, and Politics’ presents opera premiers in seven European cities, tracing the development of opera over 400 centuries, through to the international explosion of productions in the 20th and 21st centuries.
In this context, this lecture will examine two Italian takes on Shakespeare's Othello from both ends of the 19th century - Rossini's and Verdi's - to show how opera can be both about beautiful singing and stunning drama. David Nice is the well-known writer, broadcaster and lecturer on opera; author of The Illustrated Story of Opera, and opera/classical editor for the online reviews site The Arts Desk.
In association with Art Fund.
