If you could write a research paper on ANY TOPIC related (somehow) to OPERA, what would it be?
10–15 pages, you’ve got a month for research and writing (during a busy schedule), and basically all the resources you might need (great library, mentoring, computer and internet, etc)... and a solid music education, but just a basic familiarity with opera.
ANYTHING – early opera/drama, 19th century exoticism/orientalism and vocal ornaments, any aspect of a particular artist or composer, analysis of a specific opera, something related to traditional Persian or Chinese or contemporary opera, ..... so outside of the box is ok.
Thanks for the brainstorming! I need inspiration and ideas!
