This is a survey of 19th-century European opera, organized by country and time, and with consideration given to principles of theatricality as well as musical style in the repertoires. Selected collections of opera will form the basis of lectures distinguishing nation and time period, with a major work from each collection singled out for closer scrutiny. Works so designated are: La Juive, The Flying Dutchman, La traviata, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, The Queen of Spades, and Otello. Grading factors are (1) two hour and a final examination in essay format, and (2) quizzes on synopses and listening assignments, and a paper for students who enroll in MUSICOL 505, comprising a musico-dramatic analysis of an opera not among those considered in class.
