Queensland Multicultural Centre
Preparatory material will be circulated in advance by email. The President will lead the discussion and encourage a high degree of audience participation. There will be no formal lectures but rather a sharing of observations and experiences by as many attendees as possible. Short musical excerpts will be played to illustrate aspects of the discussion. Emphasis will be on the works themselves, including their dramatic structure and characters, poetic text, music, and thematic development. The focus will be on the creation and inner workings of the dramas rather than on staged interpretations.
