Halifax Summer Opera Festival and Halifax Central Library present Women Composers of Opera: an exploration in words and music
Wed, Jul 24 at 7pm
In spite of there having been many women composers in the Western tradition, relatively few women have composed operas. Dr Jane Gordon explores why this is, and celebrates some of
the stories (and music) of the trailblazers. From Francesca Caccini to Ethel Smyth, from Hildegarde von Bingen to Elizabeth Raum, we celebrate operas composed by women!
Also features Nicholas Gilmore, Giancarlo Scalia and performers from the Halifax Summer Opera Festival.
Wednesday, July 24, 7:00pm Paul O’Regan Hall, Halifax Central Library, 5540 Spring Garden
