Synopsis

Writing in 1891, the critic Eduard Hanslick observed: "There is no need to found Meyerbeer societies, or to build a special Meyerbeer theater. All the public are his admirers, and the whole of Europe his Bayreuth." How things were to change in the twentieth century. Many opera lovers today have never heard of Meyerbeer. His life and work have been largely forgotten. There is little knowledge about his operas, let alone a perception of his operatic oeuvre as an integral artistic sequence. This book endeavors to redress some of this ignorance. It offers a presentation and reading of his stage works, the complete Meyerbeer operas, considered chronologically in terms of the unfolding of the composer's life and artistic concerns.
