Event Description

Author Mitchell Cohen in dialogue with Eric Banks, Director of NYU Institute for the Humanities


From Vincenzo Galilei to the French Revolution, Mitchell Cohen offers a compelling and sweeping investigation into the intersections of music and the state in his book The Politics of Opera, a new publication by Princeton University Press.


Cohen joins NYU Institute for the Humanites director Eric Banks in conversation to investigate how politics—through story lines, symbols, harmonies, and musical motifs—have played an operatic role both robust and sotto voce, in this free event co-hosted by NY Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò. Copies of The Politics of Opera will be available for sale after the event.
