"It was the BA (Hons) Opera Studies course that set me on the road to my PhD and now the book! When I first went to university back in the 1960's. I didn't think that I would one day have a PhD! Long live the Opera Studies course and Rose Bruford College!" Julie Tretchikoff, Opera Studies student.
"I have really enjoyed the academic challenge of studying to degree level, and the opportunity to finally indulge a life-long passion. What I find particularly nourishing about the Rose Bruford course is getting to understand the relationship between the composers and their music. Opera in particular seems to me to be an outpouring of the soul. Exploring the lives and backgrounds of the composers within their historical and socio-political context is giving me a much better understanding of the depth and beauty of the human condition and it has enhanced my life in so many ways." Gillian Callow, Opera Studies student
