Invention of Opera and Monteverdi's Orfeo, IV

Lecture no. 8 from the course: How to Listen to and Understand Opera

 Invention of Opera and Monteverdi's Orfeo, IV

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 46 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

In Lectures 5 through 8 we review the Greek idea of music as it related to music of the Renaissance. We see the evolution of intermezzo as a precursor to the first real opera. We look at the role of the Florentine Camerata in the development of opera, and we examine in depth the first real opera, Monteverdi's Orfeo of 1607.
