- Identifies six public health themes and introduces students to the public health aspects of the conditions and then how they have been represented in multiple operas ranging from the 1700’s to current day.
- Examines original source texts, librettos, and staging (lighting, set design, costume, direction, and, of course, music composition) as to the ways and means by which disease and death are dramatized in the “great art form” of opera.
