National Traditions in Nineteenth-Century Opera, Volume II : Central and Eastern Europe Hardback
Edited by Michael C. Tusa
Part of the The Ashgate Library of Essays in Opera Studies series
This volume offers a cross-section of English-language scholarship on German and Slavonic operatic repertories of the "long nineteenth century," giving particular emphasis to four areas: German opera in the first half of the nineteenth century; the works of Richard Wagner after 1848; Russian opera between Glinka and Rimsky-Korsakov; and the operas of Richard Strauss and JanA!cek.
The essays reflect diverse methods, ranging from stylistic, philological, and historical approaches to those rooted in hermeneutics, critical theory, and post-modernist inquiry.
