Opera, Or, The Undoing of Women

Portada
I.B.Tauris, 1997 - 198 páginas
This work concentrates on the texts and narratives of more than 30 major operas, analyzing their cultural implications in demonstrating how they have contributed to the construction of a popularized feminine identity. It shows, for example, how 19th-century opera perpetuates a social order which requires either the death or the domestication of the female protagonist."
