Study event - SUNDAY 19 JULY

The devil has all the best tunes: morality, ethics and opera

These events are designed to enhance your enjoyment of the Festival 2020 operas and to explore some themes emerging from them

Dig deeper into our Festival operas

Presented by Alexandra Coghlan, our opera content consultant, these study events are designed to enhance your enjoyment of the Festival 2020 operas and to explore some broader themes emerging from them.

Each event features expert presentations, a panel discussion and a musical preview.

From Stravinsky’s twisted morality play The Rake’s Progress to Mozart’s delicate interrogation of Christianity and Islam in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, this season’s operas wrestle with ethical and moral dilemmas, colliding vice and virtue in unexpected, often provocative ways.

Religion’s role at the opera, private convictions and collective values will all feature in a wide-ranging discussion.
