TH 1913: The Great Actresses and Divas of Theatre, Films, Opera, and Musicals

3 CreditsFreshman Seminar

This seminar highlights actresses and divas from Byzantium's Empress Theodora in the sixth century to America's Barbra Streisand in the 21st. The activities of their male contemporaries are well documented, but the female performers have been sadly neglected. The names of Sarah Bernhardt, Maria Callas, Meryl Streep, and Julie Andrews are generally recognized, but what about Isabella Andreini, Lillian Gish, Marian Anderson, and Josephine Baker? All have made unique contributions to theatre, film, opera, and the musical as leading female performers of their time. They were and are the role models who inspire future generations.
