Xavier Hetherington (tenor)
accompanied by Kaoru Wada
Love is the tenor’s realm. Look through any compilation of tenor arias from history’s greatest operas and you will find that love and romance is the overwhelming theme. That word ‘love’ however contains a vast spectrum of emotion and action spanning from the rage-filled and violent to the uxorious and tender. This lecture, including arias by Verdi, Puccini, Tchaikovsky and Mozart, will explore the wide range of amorous expression in opera’s most popular Fach and will see how the many colours of love are reflected in music.
