Which opera has been the most enduring freedom of speech?
The Washington Times has compiled a list of the top 10 most enduring freedoms of speech of the last 200 years, and it includes operas that have taken a major stance against the United States.
The list of opera, song and poem that have influenced our lives, whether in the past or in the present, has a deep cultural and political significance.
For example, the opera The Marriage of Figaro, a story about the love affair between two women, took on the role of a political stand against American colonialism and imperialism.
The song and poetry “Singing at Midnight” and “Symphony in C Minor” by Mozart have both been central to the musical world, as have the poems “I Will Love You Forever” and the poem “Au Grassel,” by the composer John Cage.
There are some opera performances that are still considered revolutionary and controversial today, but the most important of these are the opera operas, which were among the most widely performed at the turn of the 20th century.
The list was compiled by John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, which works with organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union to encourage a dialogue about the rights of performers.
“Our list is intended to highlight the ways in which opera has inspired and informed the lives of millions of people,” said David Zaslav, executive director of the Kennedy Center.
“These are the stories that have stayed with us for a lifetime.”
Here are the top ten enduring freedom operas of the 21st century.
