The Opera Hour – series 4/episode 1

Opera singer Richard Scott explores opera through the prism of various themes. The cure and the resurrection. Richard takes a look at those curative  moments in opera when heroes and heroines are healed and the audience is spared the grief of death or tragedy. We’ll be looking at composers as diverse as Verdi, Gluck, Mahler, Beethoven, Wagner and Peter Maxwell Davies.
