Welcome to the Opera Studies Day 2018! We are delighted to be presenting this day conference at the Adam Concert Room, New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University of Wellington. The conference is free to attend, and our contributors include musicologists, practitioners, and other scholars who examine the ‘exotic and irrational entertainment’ of opera from a variety of perspectives.
The Opera Studies Day, organised by Sarah Chesney and Corrina Connor, will provide an opportunity for members of the community with a specialist or general interest in opera to discuss the creation, performance, and reception of this powerful and capricious art form.
The Opera Studies Day is supported by the New Zealand School of Music – Te Kōkī at Victoria University of Wellington.
