This special course examines The French Operatic Tradition from Lully to Milhaud. This course traces the emergence and development of those aspects of musical dramaturgy and style that have characterized French opera from the 17th to the 20th centuries. It considers the role of institutions, state support, and specific political developments, as well as examining the major figures who helped define or redefine the principle French “serious” operatic genres. It will also trace the interaction of French opera with other national operatic traditions and examine the rise of alternative or competing genres, such as Opéra-comique, Opéra-bouffe, and the Théatre Lyrique.
