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