Victoria and Albert Museum, London
Opera: Passion, Power and Politics - a major exhibition in London
Together the V&A and the Royal Opera House present a landmark exhibition exploring a vivid story of opera from its origins in late-Renaissance Italy to the present day.

Told through the lens of seven premieres in seven European cities (one of which is Wagner's Tannhäuser in Paris)  this immersive exhibition takes you on a journey through nearly 400 years, culminating in the international explosion of opera in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Worth a visit if you happen to be in London.  The excellent sound system moves with you through the exhibition, playing music relevant to the images you are currently viewing.
