Dream and Music Theatre after 1800

Continuities, Turning Points, Perspectives

18 to 20 September 2024 at the Institute of Musicology, University of Tübingen

Sleep and dream scenes have been an integral part of the genre since the beginnings of opera in the 17th century. From 1800 onwards, however, epochal changes can be observed which have affected the operatic genre itself as well as the discourse on dreams and the Western cultural sphere in general. These changes extend right up to the present day. The conference aims to discuss these developments and their interrelationships from an interdisciplinary perspective and to trace their effects down to contemporary music theatre.
