              Center Stage: Operatic Culture and Nation Building in Nineteenth-Century Central Europe
                

              Center Stage: Operatic Culture and Nation Building in Nineteenth-Century Central Europe (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Ther, Philipp; Translated by Hughes-Kreutzmuller, Charlotte

              This volume, a revised and extended version of two well-reviewed books published in German and Czech, explores the social and political background to this "opera mania" in nineteenth century Central Europe. After tracing the major trends in the opera history of the period, includ...ing the emergence of national genres of opera and its various social functions and cultural meanings, the author contrasts the histories of the major houses in Dresden (a court theatre), Lemberg (a theatre built and sponsored by aristocrats), and Prague (a civic institution). Beyond the operatic institutions and their key stage productions, composers such as Carl Maria von Weber, Richard Wagner, Bed?ich Smetana, Stanis?aw Moniuszko, Antonin Dvo?ak, and Richard Strauss are put in their social and political contexts. The concluding chapter, bringing together the different leitmotifs of social and cultural history explored in the rest of the book, explains the specificities of opera life in Central Europe within a wider European and global framework.

              Why was there such a far-reaching consensus concerning the utopian goal of national homogeneity in the first half of the twentieth century? Ethnic cleansing is analyzed here as a result of the formation of democratic nation-states, the international order based on them, and Europ...ean modernity in general.
