Encounters with Eighteenth-Century Music – March 24: “Demythologizing Gluck”

Friday, March 24, 2023, 3 p.m. EST – register here

The works of Christoph Willibald Gluck—and the critical controversies that surrounded them—have long formed a central point of reference in studies of opera in late eighteenth-century France. This panel seeks to contextualize and “demythologize” the composer’s role within the landscape of pre-revolutionary lyric theater. This virtual event is free, but registration is required.  For more information, including bios, please go to encounters.secm.org.
