The often-vexed societal reception of modernism and opera is foreboding testimony to the necessity for this book, which is the first collection of its kind... Essential. * Choice * Modernism and Opera suggests that the lessons of early modernism have been available to those who would listen. The collection draws not only on `New Modernist Studies,' but also on the older `New Musicology.' -- Robert Lawson-Peebles, University of Exeter * Modern Language Review *
