Book presentation: “Understanding the Women of Mozart’s Operas”

March 13 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

Book cover

The Barrington Area Library invited me to speak about my book, Understanding the Women of Mozart’s Operas (Univ. of Calif. Press, 2007, 2021), a critical re-evaluating source materials as well as common reception assumptions about the female roles in the Da Ponte operas and The Magic Flute. The book’s feminist lens has attracted a growing audience of readers interested in the ethics of opera culture and production, prompting a new paperback edition in 2021.

The event is free and virtual via Zoom. Register here.

Note the time difference! The talk is slated for 7pm Central Time = 5pm Pacific Time.
