People—Corbett Bazler


Corbett Bazler specializes in Italian Baroque opera, particularly the operas of Handel and his London contemporaries. His dissertation, titled "The Comedies of Opera Seria: Handel's Post-Academy Operas, 1738-1743," explores the relationship between Handel's late operas, comic spoken theater, and other forms of British entertainment in mid-eighteenth-century London. Other research interests include late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century opera and issues surrounding operatic production and performance today.
