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.
