Clearly, each of Mozart's mature masterpieces is a source of wonder. But how to interpret it on stage?

In this five-week course Iain will use a wide variety of DVD performances to discuss a spectrum of directorial approaches to these masterworks, each of which promises to provide fresh insights into these multi-layered experiences. 

We will not only learn more about Mozart and his great Operas, we will also discover how a variety of brilliant theatrical minds have illuminated these icons of operatic literature.
