Camille Rogers

Camille Rogers is currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Musicology with a Collaborative Specialization in Sexual Diversity Studies. Their research investigates how problematic historical works of music theatre can be transformed and made relevant through the bodies of modern queer performers. Specializing in French Baroque opera of the seventeenth century, Camille is active both as a researcher and as a performer of opera and early music: recent engagements include the role of Lake in FAWN’s collectively improvised techno opera, Belladonna, Young Girl with Opera Atelier (Marriage of Figaro), and Isabella in L’Italiana in Algeri with MYOpera. Camille holds a Master of Music from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Music with Great Distinction from the University of Lethbridge. They have been the recipient of several major academic awards, including the Canadian Graduate Scholarship at the Master’s level, the Alberta Heritage Fund Arts Graduate Scholarship, and the Janet Stubbs Graduate Fellowship in Opera.
