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.
