Join OperaUpClose and ArtfulScribe for an online workshop unlocking and exploring the skill of writing for music. Led by award-winning poet, novelist and librettist Glyn Maxwell.
When I started writing libretti I had no idea how to go about it, but I got some expert tips from singers, directors, musicians, and learned more as I went along. In some ways libretti is like poetry, but in important ways it's different. There are ways of storytelling in musicals and operas - arias, choruses, duets and so on - that are very useful and fun to think about. In this workshop we'll hear some examples, we'll do some games and exercises and by the end you'll have sketched out an opera drawn from your own life...
Capacity for the workshop is capped at 15 participants. Please note that this workshop will be recorded for use by both ArtfulScribe and OperaUpClose.
