Encore! A reevaluation of the operatic work of Pavlos Carrer

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper attempts a comprehensive evaluation of the artistic contribution of Pavlos Carrer in the field of opera and music theatre, on the basis of recent archival research. Carrer’s work is not homogeneous, nor stagnant; on the contrary it displays remarkable diversity, developing over time over multiple directions, which extend from romanticism to realism, from nationalism to neoclassicism, from oriental to urban-popular. This in depth examination of his work is intended to document and justify the claim that Carrer’s influence is not limited to a local or national level, but instead extends to the wider European operatic field.
