This course provides an overview of the nineteenth- and twentieth-century Western operatic repertoire by considering roughly two dozen operas from Rossini to Philip Glass. Its aim is to highlight significant developments in the genre by exploring these operas within a broad musical, cultural, and historical framework. At the center of this exploration will be basic questions surrounding the relationship between music and drama as well as the manner in which this relationship has been approached by composers at different times and coming from diverse national or regional operatic traditions. Grading for this course will be based on class participation, two exams, and a research paper to be undertaken in consultation with the instructor.
