Mondays 2 – 4pm 3, 10, 17 and 24 October

at St Paul’s and St George’s Church, York Place, Edinburgh

Heroes, villains, lovers – and a bit of theology as well: Michael Fuller revisits his popular course on opera. Moving from Monteverdi and Mozart to Adams and Ades in four lively sessions, Michael explores the history of this complex, passionate and intensely moving art form – lavishly illustrated with examples from the works being discussed.

Revd Michael Fuller has served as a priest in the dioceses of Oxford and Edinburgh, and for 14 years he ran the training programmes for those entering authorised ministry in the Scottish Episcopal Church. He now teaches and researches at New College, primarily in the field of science and religion. He has been a regular opera-goer for over 30 years, and greatly enjoys sharing with others his passion for this art form. Michael’s previous opera courses have attracted praise for ‘a great learning experience’; ‘Michael is everything that one looks for in a good teacher, enthusiastic, encouraging and having an amazing knowledge of his subject’; ‘it certainly was an Adventure in both opera and in faith! A remarkable course’.

Booking is via Adventures in Faith, £40(£35) for the series. Cheques payable to Edinburgh Diocesan Synod to 21A Grosvenor Crescent, Edinburgh, EH12 5EL. Bursary help is available, please enquire. adventures@dioceseofedinburgh.org
