The contemporary performance of Italian Baroque opera
Mauro Calcagno is Associate Professor of Musicology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. His work focuses on early opera (especially those by Claudio Monteverdi and Francesco Cavalli), the madrigal, and performance studies, with an emphasis on early modern Italy. Calcagno has recently completed a book entitled From Madrigal to Opera: Monteverdi's Staging of the Self, to be shortly published by University of California Press. He served as the President of the New England Chapter of the American Musicological Society, and he currently directs a new online digital edition of Luca Marenzio's secular works (http://www.marenzio.org).
