Henry Stoll, Assistant Professor of Music and CWPS 2023 Faculty Fellow will discuss his ongoing project to reconstruct the first opera from Haiti, L'entrée du Roi, en sa capitale (The Entrance of the King in His Capital). Published in 1818 by Juste Chanlatte (1766-1828), a prominent Haitian poet and man of letters, the opera represents a remarkable achievement in Haitian music and letters and has, until now, remained unheard among contemporary audiences.

Examining scores and libretti from a variety of libraries and archival institutions, Stoll delves into his creative process and considers some of the challenges inherent in bringing this music to life. Excerpts of this ongoing work will be heard.

Free and open to the public.
