Since 2008 the seminars of the Opéra Comique have studied opera from various perspectives, fostering transdisciplinary exchanges and international views with two lines of research in mind: firstly, the theatre Troupe and staff, secondly, lyrical economy and creation trends. Two projects benefit from an annual renewal: Women’s visibility in lyrical history and Ecology in performing arts.
Focus on the Lyrical Troupe
Three centuries of theatre life, over 3000 titles in the repertoire, works of art being played all around the world… Let’s look at the Opéra Comique’s history from women’s point of view. Our 2019 and 2020 seminars have enabled us
to get a grasp of the diversity of our profiles, experiences and issues. We shall continue to discover and/or rehabilitate female writers, composers, interpreters, viewers, administrators and fictional characters who have shaped or who are shaping French operatic life.
In collaboration with the Institut de recherche en musicologie (UMR 8223)
