Helen Greenwald’s musicology lecture, Wagner in Today’s World, is presented by the Boston Wagner Institute and hosted by Boston Conservatory at Berklee.

Greenwald is a musicologist, cellist, and translator. Her scholarly interests center on vocal music of the 18th–20th centuries, and her work has appeared in a myriad of renowned published journals. She is the convenor and editor of the Oxford Handbook of Opera (Oxford University Press, 2014), a volume of fifty essays by an international array of scholars. 

Dr. Greenwald will be discussing the complexities of performing Wagner in today’s world. Can we reconcile the man or even separate him from his art? Greenwald also writes regularly for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Opera at Covent Garden, and the Metropolitan Opera. She was visiting professor of music at the University of Chicago in 2008. She currently is a professor of musicology at New England Conservatory. Her current project is a book on Verdi’s Rigoletto for Oxford University Press.

This event is free for Berklee students, faculty, and staff with a valid Berklee ID, and Wagner Society members. Admission is $10 for all others, payable in advance on the Boston Wagner Institute’s website or at the door.
