Opera in the 20th century

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

2011: An interesting year, with quite some new first compositions and, therefore, new names. Music of the twenty-first century is becoming increasingly more important both in opera land and for individual productions. The level of abstraction is rising, although that does not apply to all composers.

  • Nico Muhly- Two Boys
  • Tarik O’Regan ( picture )- Heart of Darkness
  • Judith  Weir- Miss Fortune
