Cross-Gender China, the outcome of more than twenty years of theatrical and sociological research, deconstructs the cultural implications of cross-gender performance in today's China. The recent revival in male-to-female cross-gender nandan performance in Chinese theatre raises a multitude of questions: it may suggest new gender dynamics, or new readings of old aesthetic traditions in new socio-cultural contexts. Interrogating the positions of the gender being performed and the gender doing the performing, this volume gives a broad cultural account of the contexts in which this unique performance style has found new life.

"D'abord la musique, ensuite les paroles ? Plutôt que de rouvrir la dispute, largement résolue par les grands maîtres, Karol Beffa déplace le problème, apprenant de ses prédécesseurs l'art de ruser avec la norme. Il revisite l'opéra en tant qu'auditeur et spectateur mais aussi avec ses interrogations de compositeur. En sa compagnie, on découvre autrement Verdi (La Traviata, Aida), Ravel (L'Enfant et les Sortilèges), Strauss (Elektra), Puccini (La Fanciulla del West), Zemlinsky (Une tragédie florentine, Le Nain), Ponchielli (La Gioconda) ou l'injustement oublié Massenet (Le Cid, Cendrillon). Karol Beffa compare également les trajectoires de Wagner et Liszt, Ligeti et Mahler, Gôrecki et Penderecki pour apprendre d'eux leurs secrets de fabrique dans le traitement de la voix."--Page 4 of cover.

Don Giovanni is one of Mozart's most popular and enduringly fascinating works. E.T.A. Hoffmann described it as the "opera of all operas". This edition begins with a discussion of its comic elements by Michael F. Robinson. An overall view of the score is given by David Wyn Jones, showing how Mozart maintained dramatic momentum over its two acts and giving an overview of the dramatic pacing and orchestration in some of the most important scenes. Christopher Raeburn concludes the commentary with an engaging portrait of Lorenzo Da Ponte, Mozart's "libertine librettist", and his relationship with the composer. This guide contains more than thirty photographs covering performances of Don Giovanni to the present day, a detailed thematic analysis, the libretto in Italian with a facing literal translation, an up-to-date bibliography and a discography, as well as DVD and website guides. Contains: The `Comic' Element in Don Giovanni, Michael F. Robinson; Music and Action in Don Giovanni, David Wyn Jones; Lorenzo Da Ponte, Christopher Raeburn; Characterization in Don Giovanni, E.J. Dent, Brigid Brophy, Julian Rushton, Lawrence Lipking, Andrew Steptoe, George Hall; Don Giovanni: A Selective Performance History, Hugo Shirley; Don Giovanni: Libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte; Don Giovanni: English translation by Visiontext.

This volume examines the stories of Genesis in music, showing how musical settings can illuminate many of the Bible's most noted tales. Helen Leneman studies oratorios, operas and songs (as well as their librettos) to shed light on how Genesis has been understood and experienced over time. Examining an extensive range of musical settings of stories from the book of Genesis, Leneman offers an overview of chiefly 19th and 20th century musical engagements with this biblical text. Leneman first discusses how Eve's inner thoughts are explored by noted French composers Jules Massenet and Gabriel Faure. The text then enters the deep waters of Noah's flood in examination of several compositions, including two unusual settings by Igor Stravinsky and Benjamin Britten, as well as more conventional settings by Saint-Saens and Donizetti. Two major 19th century oratorio settings of Abraham's story by lesserknown German composers Martin Blumner and Karl Mangold provide fascinating illuminations of the Abraham narratives, whereas parts of Rebecca's story are found in works by Cesar Franck, Ferdinand Hiller, and most unusually, by a French woman composer, Celanie Carissan. Finally, Leneman shows how Joseph's story was set in numerous oratorios (including by Handel) but that one of the most important works based on his story is an opera by 18th century French composer Etienne Mehul. In addition to discussing these larger 19th century works, Leneman also examines several interesting atonal 20th century works based on the stories of Eve and the Flood, shedding new light on the history of the interpretation of the Book of Genesis.

Opera has been performed in Australia for more than two hundred years, yet none of the operas written before the Second World War have become part of the repertoire, and it is only in the late 1970s and early 1980s that there is evidence of the successful systematic production of indigenous opera. The premiere of Voss by Richard Meale and David Malouf in 1986 was a watershed in the staging and reception of new opera, and there has been a diverse series of new works staged in the last thirty years, not only by the national company, but also by thriving regional institutions. The emergence of a thriving operatic tradition in contemporary Australia is inextricably enmeshed in Australian cultural consciousness and issues of national identity. In this study of 18 representative contemporary operas, Michael Halliwell elucidates the ways in which the operas reflect and engage with the issues facing contemporary Australians. Stylistically these 18 operas vary greatly. The musical idiom is diverse, ranging from works in a modernist idiom such as The Ghost Wife, Whitsunday, Fly away Peter, Black River, Bride of Fortune, with Voss, Batavia, Bliss, Lindy, Midnight Son, The Riders, The Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, The Children's Bach being works which straddle several musical styles, to operas which draw strongly on musical theatre, such as The Eighth Wonder, Pecan Summer, The Rabbits, Cloudstreet, with Love in the Age of Therapy couched in a predominantly jazz idiom. While some of them are overtly political, all, at least tangentially, deal with recent cultural politics in Australia and offer sharply differing perspectives.

This book develops new and innovative methods for understanding the cultural significance of places such as the World Heritage listed Sydney Opera House. By connecting participatory media, visual culture and social value, Cristina Garduno Freeman contributes to a fast-growing body of scholarship on digital heritage and the popular reception of architecture. In this, her first book, she opens up a fresh perspective on heritage, as well as the ways in which people relate to architecture via participation on social media. Social media sites such as YouTube, Pinterest, Wikipedia, Facebook and Flickr, as well as others become places for people to express their connections with places, for example, the Sydney Opera House. Garduno Freeman analyses real-world examples, from souvenirs to opera-house-shaped cakes, and untangles the tangible and intangible ways in which the significance of heritage is created, disseminated and maintained. As people's encounters with World Heritage become increasingly mediated by the digital sphere there is a growing imperative for academics, professionals and policy-makers to understand the social value of significant places. This book would be beneficial to academics, students and professionals of architecture.

This concise book provides an accessible overview of the history of the telenovela in Latin America within a pan-Latino context, including the way the genre crosses borders between Latin America and the United States. Telenovelas, a distinct variety of soap operas originating in Latin America, take up key issues of race, class, sexual identity and violence, interweaving stories with melodramatic romance and quests for identity. June Carolyn Erlick examines the social implications of telenovela themes in the context of the evolution of television as an integral part of the modernization of Latin American countries.

"Fruit de dix ans d'entretiens avec Bertrand Dermon-court, Valery Gergiev, rencontre laisse enfin la parole au maestro, directeur du Théâtrte Mariinski (ex-Kirov) de Saint-Pétersbourg depuis 1988, et révèle l'incroyable aventure de sa vie. Il s'agit d'un parcours hors du commun, sur fond d'explosion de l'URSS et de chute du communisme. C'est aussi l'histoire d'un artiste qui a assumé un destin exceptionnel, riche en rebondissements, en renoncements et en conquêtes. Valery Gergiev nourrit son discours d'observations sur son art, faisant de son ouvrage une leçon de musique accessible à tous. Il raconte son combat pour la culture dans des conditions souvent rocambolesques, livre des anecdotes sur les grands de ce monde et de belles pages d'amitié. Car le tsar de la musique, véritable Karajan du XXIe siècle, est aussi un homme de coeur. Mélange de confession et de réflexion, cette rencontre avec Valery Gergiev lève un peu le voile sur son art et sa personnalité. En annexes, on trouvera des indications biographiques et une discographie complète."--Page 4 of cover.

"Fruit d'un colloque organisé en 2013 à l'occasion des célébrations du bicentenaire de la naissance de Giuseppe Verdi et Richard Wagner, ce livre se fonde sur une approche résolument interdisciplinaire développée au sein de trois équipes de recherche de l'université Rennes 2. Il propose une étude comparée des deux compositeurs à partir de différentes approches, qui se veulent complémentaires, et à partir de corpus divers. La démarche adoptée tout au long de ce volume fortement articulé permet de suivre les strates culturelles, intellectuelles et artistiques d'un triple croisement : premièrement, celui de deux créateurs, de leurs deux productions lyriques et, plus globalement, des deux univers qu'ils ont engendrés ; deuxièmement, celui des formes d'expression, puisque l'on basculera de l'opéra à la littérature, au cinéma et à la bande dessinée ; troisièmement, celui des points de vue : dramaturgie, interprétation, programmation, réception et postérité. Apparaît ainsi, d'une contribution à une autre, la façon dont l'opposition, supposée ou réelle, entre Verdi et Wagner a été utilisée ou instrumentalisée - du milieu du XIXe siècle jusqu'à nos jours - pour légitimer des choix esthétiques ou des discours de diverses natures, dans des contextes historiques et géographiques variés. L'étude du couple Verdi-Wagner témoigne de l'incroyable capacité de l'opéra à sortir de son seul domaine pour infiltrer le monde des arts et participer de la vie des idées."--Page 4 of cover.
