Re/presenting First Nations and Indigenous CultureseBook - 2011
The representation of non-Western cultures in opera has long been a focus of critical inquiry, however, the diverse relationships between opera and First Nations and indigenous cultures have received less attention. Opera Indigene addresses the changing historical depictions of indigenous cultures in opera and the more contemporary hybridizations of the form by indigenous and First Nations artists. Drawing upon postcolonial theory, ethnomusicology, cultural geography and critical discourses on nationalism and multiculturalism, the collection brings together experts on opera and music in Canada, the Americas and Australia.
