Garsington Opera: Music for the Eyes

It will be premiered at 6pm every Wednesday in May on Garsington Opera’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. The first 30-minute episode appears this Wednesday 6 May. Each week a panel of experts led by Johnny Langridge and Imogen Tedbury will take an operatic theme and explore its context within visual art, literature and more.

The first episode is centred around Le nozze di Figaro and features director John Cox, conductor Douglas Boyd (Garsington Opera’s Artistic Director) and Caroline McCaffrey-Howarth (18th Century Curator at V&A).

Future guests will be announced weekly.

‘A gentle walk through the arts in their broadest sense, focusing each week on an operatic theme and taking time with leading experts to look at its context within visual art, literature and more.

A collaboration between Garsington Opera and Dr Imogen Tedbury (Curatorial Fellow, National Gallery of London), we aim to draw unexpected and playful connections between arts, taking a wider view of particular historic moments through culture.

By looking at opera and art side by side we can discover unexpected points of connection that can bring solace through reflection in our current situation.’
