Opera in the 20th century

The history of twentieth century opera. 2000B

2000: a new milennium, and everybody is enthusiastic. The enormous choice forces us to make a selection and to transfer several things to 2001. For once, that is okay at the beginning of this new millennium. We pull out all the stops and visit all the corners of the world. Modernity falls apart into all kinds of expression forms, leading to surprising results.
