The Fandom of the Opera at McGill University by Mark Schubin
“The Fandom of the Opera” at McGill University’s Centre for Interdisciplinary Research into Music and Media Technology, by Mark Schubin
Electronic home entertainment, movies, consumer headphones – even newscasts and sportscasts – were all created for opera. Really! Emmy-award-winning engineer and historian Mark Schubin offers a brief seminar on “The fandom of the opera: How a centuries-old art form helped create the modern media world.” Broadcast rights in the 19th century? “No opera, no X-rays!”? Be amazed.
