Mahindra Humanities: "Ludic Music in Ancient Greek and Roman Theater"

6:00pm

Location: 

Barker Center, Rm. 133, 12 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

 

Timothy Moore, Washington University in St. Louis

Synopsis

Theater in ancient Greece and Rome was emphatically musical: extensive parts of almost all plays were performed to the accompaniment of a wind instrument called the aulos in Greek, tibia in Latin. An essential part of ancient theater’s music was its ludic nature. After examining briefly several examples of this phenomenon from both Greece and Rome, this paper reviews in detail the playful musical patterns of Mostellaria, a comedy by the Roman playwright Plautus.
