Anisha Netto is a postgraduate researcher in the Department of Music at the University of Southampton.

Anisha’s research project revolves around the circulation and reception of Italian opera in German translation in the late eighteenth century, with a specific focus on questions of cultural exchange, genre and networks of translators, impresarios and publishers.

Anisha is supervised by Professor Mark Everist and Professor Francesco Izzo, and is fully funded by the Wolfson Foundation.

Research interests

Anisha’s research interests include opera studies, music from the 18th and early 19th centuries, as well as  German literature of the Enlightenment and post-war drama, literary theory, thematics and translation studies. Her previous theses have looked at comparative motifs in translation across genres (in the case of The Tempest and Die Zauberflöte), and the reworkings of the Don Juan-theme in post-war German drama (in the case of Frisch’s Don Juan, oder die Liebe zur Geometrie).

PGR Representative, Department of Music (June 2019 - )

For the 2019-20 academic year, I will be undertaking several teaching activities. Within the Department of Music itself, I will be working as a teaching assistant on the Year 2module, The American Musical (MUSI 2123).

Since 2018/19. I have also taught German for the Southampton Language Opportunity initiative.

As part of my engagement and outreach, I have designed a module called A Night at the Opera for Southampton Lifelong Learning (LLL), which I am currently delivering for the Autumn 2019 session.
