Michael examines representation and identity politics in late 19th, 20th and 21st century opera and musical theatre. Specifically, his work addresses issues of vocality, technology, and aging, with a focus on diva worship, fan studies, and queerness. Other interests include discourses of “late style” throughout music history, temporality in musical theatre, and the aesthetics of trash and disgust in 20th and 21st century film sound and music.
