Prima la musica, dopo le parole?

Limited availability

The great question at the centre of Strauss’s 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.
