Call for Papers: Fashioning Opera and Musical Theatre: Stage Costumes in Europe from the Late Renaissance to 1900 (15 nov 2011)

“Costumes play an essential role in the way we experience musical theater. They define character, action and belief, enhance the sonic dimension, and blur the boundaries between reality and fiction, past and present, the human and the fantastic. From court spectacles to popular entertainments, costumes, textiles, and accessories testify to the material culture of their social milieu and to the challenges facing the artists, artisans and designers who created them. This conference brings together experts of diverse backgrounds to discuss the history, economics and aesthetics of stage costumes in European opera and musical theater from the late Renaissance to 1900.
