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 for a round-table discussion as we explore how to address the epistemological and pragmatic questions that are raised in this undertaking.
Reception to follow.
