Comment: This book is shelved in the Music section of our retail store and may require extra shipping time - GOOD - This is a hurt hardcover book with no dust jacket and some tearing scuffing bumping and creasing. Still it is fully usable and the flaws are only cosmetic.

Editorial Reviews

Review

 

"Fascinating details from behind the scenes are uncovered. . . . . Recommended."--Choice




 
"A treasury of historical information long unrelated or unknown. . . . This is a most valuable addition to anyone's operatic experience."--American Record Guide



"A highly readable collection of interesting essays that come to terms with the deeply problematic treatment of black characters by opera composers and librettists and with the exceptional challenges facing black singers on the operatic stage. The volume will appeal to opera lovers and scholars alike."--Michael V. Pisani, author of Imagining Native America in Music

"Here unusual perspectives are provided by academics from 14 institutions all linked by teaching in communications and related fields. . . . such scholars have valuable experience and insights involving current issues on prison education and the need to break from the past. . . . All contributors deserve accolades.  Recommended."--Choice


"An intriguing blend of different methodologies that all coalesce at the examination of how "blackness" is constructed in both canonical and lesser-known operas.  This monograph will no doubt be viewed as one of the hallmarks of musicological scholarship in the years to come."--Women & Music
