Speaker information

Christophe Rousset, Founder and leader, Les Talens Lyriques
Professor Sir Robin Jacob, ugh Laddie Professor of Intellectual Property Law, UCL
Professor Anthony Julius, Professor of Art and Law, UCL / Mishcon de Reya
His Honour Judge Fysh, Former Chairman, Copyright Tribunal and Judge

The distinguished conductor and harpsichordist Christophe Rousset will be conducting Mozart’s early opera Mitridate, re di Ponto at the Royal Opera on 26 and 29 June and 1st and 7 July. Mozart was not quite 15 when he wrote it. But did he copy, borrow, quote, or plagiarise (words which mean the same but carry different overtones) too much? Maestro Rousset, who has spent 25 years with his ensemble Les Talens Lyriques exploring and championing the music of Mozart’s forgotten contemporaries (Salieri, Paisiello, Jomelli), will discuss and illustrate with examples what Mozart and others did in an age where there was no copyright.
