Introdución á ópera contemporánea: Ceci n'est pas un opéra

This course aims to introduce contemporary opera to those with no knowledge, who wish to learn about its basic musical concepts, why and how they have arisen and immerse themselves in its different types: expressionist, dodecaphonic, serial, opera-installation, Literaturoper, etc., with special emphasis on the most emblematic productions.

During the four sessions, we will discuss the most important operas of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, which have been instrumental to the evolution of the genre into its current form. We will study them in relation to their social and artistic context, considering their most significant musical elements, carrying out an aesthetic-hermeneutic study that relates the production of their composers to the aesthetic trends that each opera represents best, using a transversal method spanning anthropology, music psychology and musicology.

The sessions will last approximately 2 hours during which we will cover the aesthetic movement surrounding the work, the biographical and stylistic profile of the composer and the most notable aspects of their method of composing, the opera in question and finally, the most striking aspects of the work both in terms of listening and writing.
