A Kick Up the Arias with Fiona Macrae

A Kick Up the Arias
Each week I will try to win over an opera virgin to enjoying the art form. Before recording, they will have watched an opera from start to finish (either in person or online). I will ask them what they thought opera was before, then we will discuss the experience of watching the opera and the significance of the piece. By the end of the episode, I will ask them if they would see an opera again, and hopefully they say yes! For variety (especially if we see a local production) I might invite a singer or director to discuss their experience with opera, and give more dimension to the discussion.
