Opera in the 20th century

The history of twentieth (and twenty-first) century opera. 2012A.

The year 2012: beautiful works, extraordinary works and modernism. Modernism, like liberalism, is a house with many rooms, and these are each amply explored. Works of, among others, Jörd Widmann, Anthony Davis, and Karlheinz Stockhausen came out in this opera year.

In this episode, fragments from:

  • John Adams- The Gospel According to the Other Mary
  • Pascal Duapin- Passion
  • Mittwoch aus Licht- KarlHeiz Stockhausen
