The Literary Salon - Adrian Kelly & Michael Williams

Prima la musica, dopo le parole?Moorcroft House, Lismore Roadbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The great question at the centre of Strauss’ last opera Capriccio asks us to consider which is of greater importance – the words or the music.

Without words there would be no reason for a song; without music lyrics die an unsung death. Unwrap this conundrum with Adrian Kelly, conductor for Eugene Onegin and Michael Williams, lyricist for Georgiana as they discuss, debate, divulge a little about the process of creating operas and music theatre.
