In this session, University of Chicago faculty present an excerpt of Mozart's commedia dellarte pantomime and a conversation centered on opera and laughter as they relate to performance, audience, politics, and improvisational comedy in the 18th century. Participants include faculty members Martha Feldman, David Levin, and Roger Moseley. Directed by Moseley, the ensemble impromptu comprises student and faculty participants of the university's ongoing historically inspired musical improvisation workshop.
