Opera Witch - Witchcraft & The Supernatural In 17th Century With Shauna McCaffrey
This episode of the Folklore Podcast examines the broad themes of witchcraft and the supernatural, but focuses down to look at how they were portrayed in the early modern period; specifically, how witches were represented on the 17th-century musical stage.
