Opera

An opera is a dramatic work in which the dialogue is sung (usually in its entirety) rather than spoken. The form had its origins around 1600 in an attempt by a group of Italian intellectuals to replicate the declamation of ancient Greek drama. Opera found its first champion among composers of stature in Claudio Monteverdi, whose Orfeo (1607) was the first in a long series of works that told the tailor-made-for-opera story of a musician who tried to rescue his wife from the underworld through the power of song. Through much of of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, opera was an important part of European life among noble families and powerful merchants. More and more often, operas of the Baroque era (Handel's Italian operas were among the greatest of their time) are being revived by young and charismatic performers like Cecilia Bartoli and Vivica Genaux. But for most opera lovers, the golden age of the genre runs from the works of Gluck and Mozart in the late eighteenth century up to Berg's grim Wozzeck and other modernist monuments of the twentieth -- with new works still contending for space on operatic stages every year More in Classical: Avant-Garde | Chamber | Choral - Classical | Early Music | Opera | Orchestral | Songs & Ballads | Symphonic | Textural - Classical
