National Traditions in Nineteenth Century Opera: Central and Eastern Europe: v. 2: Central and Eastern Europe

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.
