What is it? The libretto.
And it’s a form that’s increasingly popular, stretching the creative muscles of some of the world’s best writers.
This special event, in partnership with Chamber Made Opera, looks at what happens to words when they are set to music – and explores the rewards and challenges for writers working with the form.
Join composer Brett Dean, librettists Peter Goldsworthy and Joanna Murray-Smith as they sing the praises of the libretto, with Caroline Lee. (rodneyvc)
