About the event

Becca Marriott (soprano) accompanied by Natalie Burch on piano.

Before beginning her current career as soprano and librettist, Becca Marriott read English at Oxford. In this lecture, she returns to her roots, using her extensive knowledge of both literature and music to explore the story of how art escaped the iron grip of sentimentality.

This was not solely a literary development; in opera, the sentimental Italian grand operas found themselves superseded by the new comic operas that seemed to be directly mocking them. From Samuel Richardson to Jane Austen, from Pergolesi to Donizetti, join Becca on an exciting Regency ride with a difference to discover the evolution that art itself underwent!

Opera Prelude is a small charity passionate about supporting young professional opera singers who give lecture recitals in London. These friendly and inclusive events will introduce you to the international opera singers of tomorrow by way of recitals, concerts and masterclasses.
