Royal Opera House, Mumbai in association with Avid Learning, Furtados, Italian Embassy Cultural Centre, Mumbai and The Quarter is set to encore a third workshop in our Opera Appreciation series with Pianist and Opera Accompanist Mark Troop who will be joined later in the day by Special Guest Maestro Massimo Taddia.
The description of the Workshop is as below:
This workshop follows the success of our previous two workshops on the subject, which aim to provide rare glimpses into the world of this fascinating and hauntingly beautiful musical genre. Having laid much-needed historical and critical groundwork, Mark will now turn to more practical aspects of actually realising an Opera on stage- using our upcoming annual in-house production, Josef Haydn’s La Fedelta Premiata, as a working example. This is an exciting opportunity for those who have only seen or heard recorded versions of opera to experience how it comes alive on stage. From production elements to costuming, from musical direction to set design this workshop will give you a complete behind-the-scenes peek into how an elaborate Operatic production is conceptualised, painstakingly put together and eventually becomes a living performance on stage.
- Historical Production- discover Opera in the time of Haydn and Mozart
- Contemporizing Opera – discover how an 18th century drama is made relevant for the 21st century Mumbaikar.
- Live demonstration of Opera techniques with cast members to illustrate their roles (acting vs singing) and talk about the process.
- Making opera real – Production Elements, Costuming, Set Design
Whether you are an enthusiast, connoisseur or just simply curious, do not miss this rare opportunity to witness an Opera coming to life!
