The Reframing Opera Project: Part 1
Operatic Works Composed by Women from the U.S.A.
The Reframing Opera Project consolidates and provides pertinent information for the performance, exploration, and study of 1,361 operatic works by 591 U.S. women composers. It provides academics, artists, and administrators a simple tool for diversifying their programs. Moreover, in expanding our knowledge of the operatic output of U.S. women, it combats the underrepresentation of women composers in U.S. operatic performances. The archive does not comment on the quality or viability of these works or composers, but rather aims to give greater visibility to the bevy of U.S. women composers and their operatic works.
