The study of French opera is one of the cutting-edge topics in current musicological research. In the international symposium "The Institutions of Opera in Paris from the July Revolution to the Dreyfus Affair," both leading scholars and promising younger entrants in the field of Opera Studies will come together to focus, for the first time, on the vital issue of "institution" with respect to French opera in the nineteenth century. The symposium will offer an ideal frame-work for scholars to present most recent research to the public and their peers as the basis for exchange and discussion. The subsequent publication of the reworked papers (planned with Princeton University Press) will constitute a significant contribution to the study not only of opera in the nineteenth century but also French cultural life.
