I Lived for Art, I Lived for Love: The Magic of Libretto

This event has finished

A libretto is the text of a dramatic musical work – such as an opera – so it's fitting that Chamber Made Orchestra has teamed up with Writers Victoria to sing the praises of the libretto.

Composer Brett Dean joins writers Peter Goldsworthy and Joanna Murray-Smith, as well as the Wheeler Centre's Caroline Lee, to look at what happens to words when they are set to music.
