A Night in at the Opera: Media Representations of Opera
J. Libbey, Jan 1, 1994 - Music - 310 pages
"Offering an arresting range of accounts by specialists in music, media, and popular culture on how the popular arts have represented opera, this book raises issues about the sociology of music and its implications for television and video culture. It looks at the relationships between serious and popular music, the desire of some composers to work in the latter while being engaged in more classical composition, and the love-hate relationships between Hollywood and La Scala."
