Parole del Metastasio : opera and emotions in eighteenth-century Europe

25–27 March, 2020, Teatro Real, Madrid
Website

In eighteenth-century Europe, Metastasio’s work marked poetic, musical, and cultural boundaries within which the production of sung music developed for more than a hundred years. His vision of the world, and of human relationships and passions, influenced not only the hundreds of composers who ventured the musical setting of his lyrics, but also all other poets inspired by his words for music.

Given the unparalleled impact of Metastasio’s texts in operatic composition throughout the eighteenth century, complete exploration of the librettist’s figure requires attending to the myriads of musical versions prompted by the emotions expressed in his lyrics. Therefore, we warmly invite presentations investigating the relationship between text and music around Metastasian passions, with especial attention to the dramaturgical and musical treatment thereof within his recitatives and closed pieces. We particularly encourage papers using novel methodologies for the study of the librettist’s world, including digital, computer-assisted techniques for data extraction from both music and poetry.

This symposium is an expression of the European Research Council project DIDONE. The Sources of Absolute Music: Mapping Emotions in Eighteenth-Century Italian Opera (https://www.didone.eu), directed by Álvaro Torrente at the Instituto Complutense de Ciencias Musicales (Universidad Complutense de Madrid). It will coincide with the representation of Francesco Corselli’s setting of Metastasio’s Achille in Sciro in the Teatro Real in Madrid.
