Verdi included a chorus in all of his most popular operas; Wagner felt that the opera chorus lacked dramatic function and deliberately excluded it in his later works. Today, composers use the chorus in a variety of innovative ways. This lecture will focus on how the use of the opera chorus has changed, both dramatically and musically, from the Romantic era to the present day.
