Coal & Culture : Opera Houses In Appalachia, Hardback Book

Coal & Culture : Opera Houses In Appalachia Hardback


A critical appreciation of the opera house in the coal-mining region of Appalachia from the mid 1860s to the early 1930s, Coal and Culture demonstrates that these were multipurpose facilities that were used for traveling theater, concerts, religious events, lectures, commencements, boxing matches, benefits, union meetings, and - if the auditorium had a flat floor - skating and basketball.
