Opera Seria as a Site of Movement and Arrest
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Musicology and Performance Studies, Musicology.
2014 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The paper focuses on Italian opera from the early eighteenth century and provides images of how the site of the historical performance generated experiences of movement and arrest through visual, aural and verbal media. Inspired by Erika Fischer-Lichte's performative aesthetics, and American musicologist Martha Feldman's performative model predicated upon ritual practices, this kind of opera is seen in the light of two kinds of sites: the imaginary site represented on stage, on the one hand, and the site of the performance, on the other.
