Editorial Reviews


"An important book for theater scholars..." R.F. Falk, Choice

"This book deserves consideration for the effective presentation of the interrelatedness of literature, music, and theater in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Vienna." Richard Ernest Walker, Germanic Notes and Reviews

Book Description

Vienna is of central importance in the whole history of drama, opera and operetta, and for more than a century was the only German-speaking city to sustain a theatrical life comparable to that of Paris or London. This is the first general history in English of modern theatre in Vienna, covering the period from its beginnings in the 1770s right up to the present day. It takes full account of the social, political and intellectual contexts of theatrical culture, and provides a wealth of factual informatio n based on original documents and up-to-date scholarship. All quotations are given in English to promote maximum accessibility.
