The Gilded Stage: A Social History of Opera
By Daniel Snowman

Fascinating and highly readable, this is the definitive social history of opera, the world's most romantic, flamboyant, glamorous, and politically influential art form. This history tells the story of opera from the charm and chaos of Mozart's Vienna to Frederick the Great's Berlin.

“A mighty achievement, by far and away the best history of opera available.” -  Tim Blanning, Literary Review

About the Author
Daniel Snowman’s books include critical portraits of the Amadeus Quartet and Plácido Domingo and, more recently, Historians.
