Are you interested in contemporary opera? Do you want to learn how opera engages with issues of social justice?

COM LIT 191, SEMINAR 2 (Fall 2018) will explore the history of opera in South Africa, Black opera, and contemporary operas that engage with issues of social justice. Students will learn about operatic history and style, as well as how to analyze the relationship between music and words, and interpret operatic texts (libretti).

The highlight of this class will be the field trips to the LA Opera, where students will experience Philip Glass's Satyagraha live.
