Deities, Maidens, and Seductresses in Early Modern Spanish Musical Theatre
Dr. M. Virginia Acu?a, Music
Early modern Spanish rules of conduct and behaviour stated that women should neither participate in public activities nor speak in front of men. Yet, rather surprisingly, women monopolized the theatrical stage, performing all sung male and female roles in early Spanish operatic genres. This talk presents research findings from my current postdoctoral work funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and opens the door to discussions on gender roles and repression, and artistic expression.
