Phantoms of the Americas

Phantoms of the Opera Symposium

The Phantom of the Opera presentations

In this Sunday late-morning session, scholars from around the world will discuss how the Phantom has been unmasked—in more ways than one—in North- and South American adaptations.

Murray Leeder, University of Calgary (Film Studies), presents 'Ghostliness, embodiment and unmasking.' 

Robert Sholl, Royal Academy of Music and University of West London (Music), presents ‘The 1925 unmasking scene: Improvisation in context.’

Aída Cordero Domínguez, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Audiovisual Creation), presents 'El Fantasma de la Ópera through the prism of Ibáñez Serrador.'

Charlotte Gleghorn, University of Edinburgh (Latin American Studies), presents 'In pursuit of Narciso: Phantom myth and archive in Argentina.' 

These presentations are followed by a discussion. 

This session ends at 1pm.
