Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in nineteenth-century Parisian theatre with music — including, but also beyond, opera and operetta. For my PhD dissertation I studied féerie, the French fairy play, in the last third of the century. My postdoctoral project at Bristol looks at the exchanges and parallels between fin-de-siècle Parisian féerie and late Victorian spectacular theatre with music in London, particularly the Christmas pantomime.

My other work is preoccupied with French music and theatre in a global perspective and with the material reality of theatre production. I have done research on the transatlantic circulation of performers and repertoire, on the influence of French opera in Italy and Britain, on the Atlantic World context of Meyerbeer’s L’Africaine, and I am preparing a critical edition of the staging manual for the French première of Puccini’s Tosca.
