Bewitching Russian Opera

Inna Naroditskaya's book "Bewitching Russian Opera" published by Oxford University Press.
" Delving into the densely intertextual world of Russian literature and opera saturated with veiled codes and allusions, Naroditskaya’s “masterpiece of intertextual hermeneutics” (Timothy Rice, ethnomusicologist, UCLA) illuminates uncharted links between eighteenth-century Russian tsarinas and their fairytale counterparts in nineteenth-century nationalist operas, between politics of cultural memory and generational anxiety, between theater in imperial court and court as a theater."
