Description

American Musicological Society Lecture
“Americans’ Forgotten Love Affair with Opera”
Katherine Preston, PhD, David N. & Margaret C. Bottoms Professor of Music, William & Mary

Preston looks at the prevalence of English-language opera productions in the United States in the 19th century, debunking the myth that only the elite attended operatic productions. A significant portion of the research for this talk was done at the Library of Congress, utilizing the Music Division’s extensive collection of binders’ volumes and music periodicals.

This lecture is presented as part of the ongoing American Musicological Society lecture series at the Library of Congressamerican musicological society logo
