Reading Opera between the Lines Orchestral Interludes and Cultural Meaning from Wagner to Berg, Morris, Christopher

Cambridge University Press 2002 0521807387 / 9780521807388 Hardcover New in Fine dust jacket 
xii, 219pp, music examples. A feature of Wagnerian and post-Wagnerian opera is the tendency to link scenes with numerous and often surprisingly lengthy orchestral interludes, frequently performed with the curtain closed. Often taken for granted or treated as a filler by audiences and critics, these interludes can take on very prominent roles, representing dream sequences, journeys and sexual encounters, and in some cases becoming a highlight of the opera. The author investigates the implications of these important but strangely overlooked passages. New copy ; New Perspectives in Music History and Criticism
