Opera in the 20th century

The history of twentieth century opera. 2000A

2000: It’s the start of a new millennium and everyone is excited. There is so much music to choose from from this year, that we had to make a selection and carry some songs over to 2001. Which we can, it’s a new millenium after all. We pull out all stops and visit all corners of the world. Modern life can be divided into all kinds of (self) expression and that gives surprising results.
