The Opera Hour - 2nd April 2015

Opera singer and poet Richard Scott explores opera and libretti through the prism of various themes. On today’s show Richard explores the fate of those who were burnt at the stake or executed for simply being themselves in the operas of Verdi, Donizetti, Poulenc, Handel and Bernstein. Richard will also be talking to the celebrated poet and librettist David Harsent about his new collection Fire Songs and his troubled muse, the Protestant martyr Anne Askew.
