Abstract

C. May Marston Assistant Professor of Classics Owen Ewald discusses the creative work of such classical composers as Monteverdi, Berlioz, and Strauss in bringing classical literature from text to musical performance. The genre of opera in particular provided "new wineskins" for the ancient performance form of tragedy, and the content of ancient myths and epics. He discusses three operas from different centuries and countries offering different ways in which classical traditions become re-invented for modern audiences.
