Featuring: The Note-Book
Synopsis: Burt takes the boys camping and while building a fire tells them about the first operas, written in Florence, Italy around 1600. Monteverdi brought melody to the opera stage in 1607. In the 18th century, Christophe Gluck led a movement against the Neopolitan type of operas. Gluck's first operas were based on Greek myths. In Austria in the 18th century, Mozart began to write opera. His music helped carry the mood of the opera and described what was happening on stage. In the USA, we have musicals like Porgy and Bess, which describes life among poor southern Negroes.
