Graduate Student Work-in-Progress: Paul Abdullah – Opera, Shakespeare, and the Creation of Romanticism
Clark Hall, Room 206 (11130 Bellflower Road, Cleveland, OH)
Shakespeare’s current position atop the global literary pantheon belies a complex history of reception, especially in continental Europe. By examining the collision of early nineteenth-century Shakespeare reception and nascent romantic opera, Musicology PhD candidate Paul Abdullah highlights the entanglements of literary and musical histories for the romantic generation.
