Christopher Chowrimootoo, an assistant professor in Notre Dame’s Program of Liberal Studies, has been awarded the 2013 Kurt Weill Prize for outstanding article for his “Bourgeois Opera: Death in Venice and the Aesthetics of Sublimation.”
The prize, which recognizes distinguished scholarship in music theatre, is awarded biennially by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music. Nominations are reviewed by a panel of music and theatre experts.
“As a young scholar starting out on an academic career, it was a great honor to receive this award,” Chowrimootoo says. “The prize is open to scholarship from many disciplines related to performing arts, so it shows an appreciation of my work outside the field of musicology.”
