Coming this fall to University of Toronto Quarterly 


Operatics: The Interdisciplinary Workings of Opera

University of Toronto Quarterly - Volume 81, Number 4, Fall 2012

Editors - Katherine R. Larson, Sherry D. Lee, Caryl Clark, and Linda


In its emphasis on “Operatics,” this special issue takes as its focus the
“workings” of opera: the dynamic relationship between operatic source
text(s), libretto, and musical score, and the technological and
physiological labour that makes possible operatic production and
performance. It also registers opera’s powerful capacity both to rework
particular narratives and historical moments and to work on audience members
through its lavish fusion of music, text, and stage spectacle as well as
increasingly varied modes of reception. The work showcased in this
collection emerged out of the 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12 seasons of the
Opera Exchange, an innovative symposium series based at the University of
Toronto and co-organized with the Canadian Opera Company which has been
bringing together leading scholars to elucidate selected operatic texts from
a range of disciplinary perspectives for nearly ten years. Together, the
contributors to this volume help to illuminate, from richly varied
perspectives, the implications of confronting the “operatics”–the inner and
affective workings–of the extravagant, provocative, and fundamentally
interdisciplinary genre that is opera.

University of Toronto Quarterly

Acclaimed as one of the finest journals focused on the humanities,
University of Toronto Quarterly is filled with serious, probing, and
vigorously researched articles spanning a wide range of subjects in the
humanities. Often the best insights in one field of knowledge come through
cross-fertilization, where authors can apply another discipline’s ideas,
concepts, and paradigms to their own disciplines. UTQ is not a journal where
one philosopher speaks to another, but a place where a philosopher can speak
to specialists and general readers in many other fields. This
interdisciplinary approach provides a depth and quality to the journal that
attracts both general readers and specialists from across the humanities.
