Opera Lecture Series: From Operetta to Music Theatre

Explore the fascinating world of opera with popular opera lecturer Murray Dahm.

Since 2003, Opera Bites Co-Founder Murray Dahm has delivered accessible and informative lectures, drawing on its history, culture and music.

Join him as he explores a variety of areas of operatic history from composers and voice types through to genres and quirky bits of opera history, utilising his extensive (and ever-growing!) CD and DVD collection.

“From Operetta to Music Theatre”
Some of the world’s most popular music has come from Musical Theatre (think “Cats”, “Les Miserables”, “The Sound of Music” to name a few).

The origins of this art form stretch all the way back to the 17th Century and in this course we’ll explore all of those, from Comic Opera to Vaudeville to Music Hall and Operetta.
