Dutch literature of the 17th century, while not as famous as other elements of the culture of the Dutch Golden Age, deserves independent focus, not only because of its own intrinsic worth, but also because of the evidence of strong social concern that it presents and the light it sheds on other aspects of the Golden Age…

Ballet and Opera in the Age of "Giselle" (Princeton Studies in Opera)

Ballet and Opera in the Age of "Giselle" (Princeton Studies in Opera) by Marian Smith
English | 31 Dec. 2000 | ISBN: 0691049947 | 288 Pages | PDF | 49.01 MB


Marian Smith recaptures a rich period in French musical theater when ballet and opera were intimately connected. Focusing on the age of Giselle at the Paris Opéra (from the 1830s through the 1840s), Smith offers an unprecedented look at the structural and thematic relationship between the two genres. She argues that a deeper understanding of both ballet and opera–and of nineteenth-century theater-going culture in general–may be gained by examining them within the same framework instead of following the usual practice of telling their histories separately. This handsomely illustrated book ultimately provides a new portrait of the Opéra during a period long celebrated for its box-office successes in both genres.
