Opera talks in Ealing – Autumn 2022

Opera unites words, music, and staging into one glorious, incomparable soufflé whose recipe for success depends not only on the quality of its ingredients but on the skill of its preparation. What is the secret of its aroma? Why is opera revered as one of the highest art forms ever conceived and achieved by mankind? One answer lies in its tremendous power to move us emotionally; words inspire music which, in turn, enhances the meaning of the words: a fabulous cross-fertilization which touches us more deeply than we can explain.

Focusing on operas currently in performance in London (or in relay to cinemas), Ross Alley (who has given many talks at the Royal Opera House) introduces, explains and comments on these works as a preparation. The Autumn 2022 series begins with Verdi’s “Aida”, the grandest of all grand operas, on Friday 16 September. For full details of the autumn schedule, please email: ross.alley@yahoo.co.uk
