Halifax Summer Opera Festival and Halifax Central Library present Women Composers of Opera: an exploration in words and music

This event has passed.

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.
