Abstract or Description

Opera seria has long resisted our understanding. The baroque era's most prestigious genre, it has typically been dismissed—or at best awkwardly excused—by modern scholars. Enter Martha Feldman. Since her earliest articles, Feldman has revolutionized our grasp of opera seria, restoring the lived event to the scholarly imagination. Opera and Sovereignty is the apex of Feldman's work on the genre, and the most important volume ever published about opera seria.
