Great Operatic Basses and Baritones

From villains to buffoons, philosophers to kings and even gods, basses and

baritones feature in almost every opera.  Whether the voice of reason, comedy

or crime, the distinct dark tones of the bass and baritone voice colour many of

our ideas about how opera should be performed from Dr Dulcamara to Scarpia,

Zarastro to the Devil.  The music for these voices is among opera's most famous

and these roles have been performed by some of the greatest performers. 


Join us for this course where we will examine opera’s most famous basses and

baritones and the roles they have sung.  The course will make extensive use of

recordings and DVDs.
