Performance: Love in a Village

Love in a Village became the first full-length opera to mirror the middle-class sensibilities of a public responsible for the rise of the novel under Richardson, Fielding, and Smollett.  Neglected for nearly the past century, in spite of commemorations of Arne’s death (1978) and birth (2010), the unique surviving manuscript full score was finally edited, and published, by Artaria in New Zealand in 2011; yet no one has accepted the implicit invitation (or challenge) to perform from this edition. Moreover, since then, another editorial team independently pursued a similar project and soon signed a contract to publish with German publisher Bärenreiter.

The performance will constitute the first-ever (post-18th-century) historically informed public revival of the complete contents of the manuscript full score, and will be framed by a student curated exhibit and a full complement of scholarly panels and discussions.
