Biography

Prior to her graduate work she taught music privately and in public schools in Missouri and Illinois. Her academic career began in 1981, when she was appointed professor of music at the University of Virginia, where she was also chair of the music department (1988–95, 1998–9). Her dissertation on Jommelli's last years proved to be the starting point for extensive, wide-ranging studies on 18th-century Italian opera, in particular treating the innovations and modifications in opera seria during the second half of the century; these studies have thrown new light on the background to the operas of Mozart, Haydn and Gluck, and have focussed scholarly attention on the librettist Mattia Verazi.
