Beyond the Stage: Composing New Opera

Victorian Opera’s exciting new education program for secondary school students breaks down the composition process when writing music for opera. 

Composers Kevin March and Simon Bruckard take you and your students through their compositions for Victorian Opera’s commissioned work Echo and Narcissus / Cassandra.

Over a series of short video interviews, Kevin and Simon explore the elements of music and compositional devises used in their works and explain key components central to composing music for opera.

Watch a performance of Echo and Narcissus / Cassandra on-demand and hear the music come to life on stage.
