Join Liz Nolan as she visits the chronicles of this passionate and spectacular art.
Each week an opera, a story, a glimpse into the lives of the characters, both real and imaginary, who have shaped the form as we know it today.
The Devil Finds Work for Idle Hands… Not the cheeriest tagline for an opera, but when it’s hitched up to Stravinsky opera and Hogarth satire, you’re in for a treat.
This week, Tales from the Opera prances down the primrose path in company with The Rake’s Progress.
