Opera in the 20th century

The history of twentieth (and twenty-first) century opera. 2011A.

2011: An interesting year, with quite some new first compositions and, therefore, new names. Music from the 21st century is becoming increasingly important in opera land, and for individual productions. The level of abstraction rises, although that doesn’t apply to all composers.   

In this episode, fragments from:

  • Gerald Barry- The Importance of being Earnest
  • Karl-Heinz Stockhausen- Engel Prozessionen (Sonntag aus Licht)
  • Oscar Bianchi ( picture )- Thanks to my Eyes
