Bob's Opera Favourites

Bob Kiddle

with Bob Kiddle

Opera, Baroque, Music Drama

You know that Nessun Dorma got people wound up to football, but did you ever wonder what it’s saying about the feelings of the character who sings it in Puccini’s opera, Turandot? Or what ‘those two Italian ladies’ were singing about in the Shawshank Redemption? Bob plays some of his favourite songs from the world of opera, points out key things to listen for and reveals what emotions and feelings the composer is trying to convey. You may be surprised by how many of the tunes you already know!
