In the winter of 2018–19 the CSNCM will launch an opera study group for graduate students and faculty. The goals of this group are:

  •  to boost faculty and students’ interest in long nineteenth-century opera
  • to provide a low-stakes opportunity for watching “must-see” or “classic” operas or productions that some students have not yet seen, or wish to see again
  • to encourage critical discussion on opera between faculty members and students
  • to socialize and have some fun! 

A group of participants will meet once per month to view and discuss a particular opera; one relevant reading will be circulated to those attending in advance, and discussion questions will be introduced as ‘food for thought’ prior to the viewing. Student attendees are especially welcome to introduce a particular opera and come up with a reading and some discussion.
