Stormy Weather: Shipwrecks and Seafarers in Opera and Song

Supported by The Arts House

VISUAL ARTS, TALK

 

The sea has a music all its own—a rhythm which echoes the rhythm of life, and of death. For centuries, the sea-faring life has inspired a vast array of music and poetry, from the folk-ballads of out-port villages to the high art of Wagnerian opera. Join musicologist Dr. Katherine Wallace as she explores songs of shipwrecks and seafarers, culminating in the operatic legend of the Flying Dutchman.

Stormy Weather is a presentation that Dr. Wallace originally gave at the Esplanade prior to the staging of The Flying Dutchman in 2016.
