Opera Through the Ages

Washington, DC

How has opera changed over the last 30 years? NEA Opera Honors recipient Carlisle Floyd has a perhaps surprising theory on why opera has grown over the last three decades. [2:57]

Listen to the entire podcast, with Floyd as he discusses the writing of some of his most famous pieces, from Susannah to Cold Sassy Tree, playwriting versus libretto writing, and the importance of educating audiences.

Visit us again next week for the Art Works podcast on Amy Tan.
