Lecture and Round-Table Discussion: RE-STAGING BAROQUE OPERA
Time: Wed Nov 20, 2013, 5:00PM – 7:00PM
Location: Annenberg Auditorium
Sponsored by The Provost’s Initiative on Building Intellectual Community
The conceptual, artistic, and practical challenges of staging Baroque opera involve a wide range of academic disciplines, making it one of the quintessential interdisciplinary exercises in contemporary culture. Confronting the often fragmentary evidence that remains of even some of the most renowned performances of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries means modern performers and stage directors must fill in the gaps. Join us as we explore how to address the epistemological and pragmatic questions that are raised in this undertaking.
A round-table discussion with Notre Dame participants Mark Beudert (Music), Randy Coleman (Art History), Richard Donnelly (FTT), Peter Jeffrey (Music), David Mayernik (Architecture), Pierpaolo Polzonetti (PLS), Georgine Resick (Music), and Marsha Stevenson (Hesburgh Library).
Reception to follow.
