Opera - Passion. Power and Politics

Click on name to display all books by this author / editor

-----------------------------------

Opera is traditionally regarded as an elitist art form, far removed from reality. This lavishly illustrated book shows that beneath all the opulent sets and sumptuous costumes, opera, like all the arts, draws on essential human emotions, creating an experience that can be endlessly reinvented to reflect changes in society. Through the lens of seven opera premieres in seven cities across the past 400 years, the authors look at snapshots in time where politics, art, and social history intersected, providing an immersive account of the society from which these pieces and performances evolved. This book will fascinate seasoned opera goers and history buffs alike.
