Music 101: Comedy in the 18th Century10:00 – 11:00 a.m.Music 101: Comedy in the 18th Century
Before the American and French revolutions, tragedy and comedy were defined by social class. Whereas aristocratic characters were always represented in serious situations, the lower orders of society were considered intrinsically comic and thus the proper subjects of comedy. By asserting that “all men are created equal,” the Declaration of Independence was therefore challenging assumptions about both society and humor.

This informative and entertaining six-week course explores how popular forms of comic art began to undermine the ancien régime in the century before Napoleon. In addition to examining the music, literature, and fashion of the time, particular attention is paid to the brilliant satirical drawings that spawned the modern political cartoon.

Dr. Peter A. Hoyt, a former president of the Mozart Society of America, is the CMA’s Adjunct Curator for Music and a frequent guest lecturer and program annotator at Lincoln Center in New York.
