Research Interests

Her research focuses on the eighteenth-century London stage, European vocal music, European popular music before 1800 and, more generally, how vocal stars of the past produced their music and were produced by it. Her research is informed by her background as a singer and her work as a music critic for the BBC. Through her teaching and research, she seeks to cross boundaries of eras, disciplines, media and traditional musical scholarship.
