It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability will impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and the Disability Liaison Unit.
The subject will examine selected vocal works from the Italian repertoire with an emphasis on Italian opera. Students will be guided with language coaching in the idiomatic pronunciation of Italian texts, some discussion of context and meaning (if an operatic aria), and dictionary usage for literal translation of texts being prepared for recital.

Active weekly class participation, comprising of weekly preparation of parts, individual and/or sectional practice and active contribution to all rehearsals, classes and performances (30%); a secco recitative and recitation exercise in Week 6 (30%); an end-of-semester test including singing one Italian aria or song accompanied by the piano (40%).
