"Expanding the Operatic Canon and Reframing How We Consider its History" with Dr. Tiffany Kuo

Posted on: May 18, 2021

In this podcast, Dr. Tiffany Kuo, Professor of Music at Mount San Antonio College and Colburn Conservatory of Music, analyzes the importance of patronage in opera and the arts as she examines Perle Noire: Meditations for Joséphine by composer Tyshawn Sorey, whose digital short DEATH is currently streaming on LA Opera's On Now platform.

Tiffany Kuo’s discussion of Perle Noire, a staged-song cycle conceived by Peter Sellars and sung by soprano Julia Bullock, helps us to explore and expand how we conceive of the operatic canon. This discussion was recorded in May 2021 as part of LA Opera Connects professional development series for teachers, Opera for Educators.
