The OAE performs film music

The OU’s partner orchestra, The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will be performing the 1926 silent film version of Richard Strauss’s 1911 opera Der Rosenkavalier in London on Thursday 17 May, and in Bristol on Friday 18 May.

Student tickets are available for £5.

In this short video, OU senior lecturer Ben Winters talks a little about the purpose and challenge of silent-film accompaniment:

You can study music for film as part of A342: Central Questions in the Study of Music, part of our new Music BA degree.
