On April 3-4, UNLV will host Mary Ann Smart, Gladyce Arata Terrill Professor of Music at the University of California, Berkeley. Professor Smart's wide-ranging work focuses on what she calls "social dimensions of opera," including the impact of singers on composerly decisions, the political uses to which Verdi's music has been put, and the role of bodily gesture on the operatic stage in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries.

On April 3, Professor Smart will offer a lecture at the University Forum (see details here). On April 4, she invites the community to engage with her in a casual conversation on the topic "Power and Agency in Opera Staging: A New Approach."

Both events are free and open to the public. These presentations are presented as part of the School of Music's ongoing series, "Opera as Global Practice."
