Opera: Passion, Power and Politics

Until the 25th of February at the V & A Museum you can enjoy this exhibition about the history of the opera. 

Together the V&A and the Royal Opera House present a landmark exhibition exploring a vivid story of opera from its origins in late-Renaissance Italy to the present day. Told through the lens of seven premieres in seven European cities, this immersive exhibition takes you on a journey through nearly 400 years, culminating in the international explosion of opera in the 20th and 21st centuries. 

This is the first exhibition to be staged in the new Sainsbury Gallery; part of the V&A’s Exhibition Road Quarter.
