Vetere To Present “Boito’s Code: Solving the Secrets of the “Scapigliati” and Revealing the Language of Chaos”

Boito: An under-rated genius

On April 30-May 1st the New York/St. Lawrence Chapter Meeting of the American Musicological Society will hold its annual conference a Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.  For the first time, Dr. Vetere will be presenting a portion of her research on Boito and the seemingly miscontrued enigmatic movement, the Scapigliatura.  Proving elemental to Italian opera and its development in the nineteenth-century, the Scapigliatura has received little attention in musicology, where Verismo has been more readily examined.  Dr. Vetere is attempting to re-define the Scapigliatura’s presence in history and its artistic value as an independent movement based on its own set of aesthetic principles and motives between Verdi and Verismo.  Her paper, “Boito’s Code: Solving the Secrets of the Scapigliati and Revealing the Language of Chaos” will be given on Sunday, May 1st at 10:40am.
