Publicity material for this event says:

On this course you will explore the worlds of poetry and opera with poet and ex-opera singer Richard Scott. You’ll be invited to soak up the atmosphere of the Royal Opera House – including a private backstage tour, a pre-show glimpse at the costumes and stage-weapons — all before watching a dress rehearsal of Barrie Kosky’s radical production of Bizet’s Carmen. A month later you’ll meet again with Richard to discuss how other poets, including Mark Doty, Frederick Seidel, W.H. Auden and Charles Simic, have tackled the opera in their poetry; then together you’ll workshop and examine your new poems inspired by this unique operatic experience!

A two-day workshop running on 3 February, 9:30 – 16:30, (Royal Opera House Day) and 3 March, 10:30 – 16:30 (Workshop Day).
