Thesis title:

Italian Opera after Puccini: The Case of Giorgio Federico Ghedini

Retracing the operatic production of the Italian composer Giorgio Federico Ghedini, my research investigates a crucial and complex moment for musical theatre, between the first and second half of the 20th century. Opera, weaving together several art forms, mirrors the extent of historical and social changes: totalitarianisms and two world wars, the emergence of mass society, new media and cultural vanguards.
