"This book opens many doors, not simply those that reveal the work of women writers and composers in post-Revolution France.... There is more than fine sociology and musicology here: real music is at the heart of the matter." - Christopher Hogwood. Director of the Academy of Ancient Music "Letzer and Adelson bring vividly to life a moment in cultural production unknown to most of us, and they help us understand more fully both the general problems confronting women artists and the specific conditions of this particular time and place. We now have theoretically informed studies of the careers of only a few female composers before 1900; Women Writing Opera greatly enriches our knowledge." - Susan McClary, author of Conventional Wisdom
