I am currently researching international through-sung drama. In short, any onstage form where the performers sing all the time, whether opera, musicals, Noh, or something else. I'm particularly interested in why people bother singing - something that came up in Lieder, Leaders, & Lovers.
Through Virtually Opera, I have an ongoing research interest in cinematically-filmed opera, both as a practitioner and as a researcher.
During my undergraduate degree, I had the chance to research lots of different bits of opera's history. This has proven very useful when working on operas old and new.
