Carmen And The Staging Of Spain

by Michael Christoforidis, Carmen And The Staging Of Spain Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Carmen And The Staging Of Spain books, Carmen and the Staging of Spain explores the Belle �poque fascination with Spanish entertainment that refashioned Bizet's opera and gave rise to an international "Carmen industry." Authors Michael Christoforidis and Elizabeth Kertesz challenge the notion of Carmen as an unchanging exotic construct, tracing the ways in which performers and productions responded to evolving fashions for Spanish style from its 1875 premiere to 1915. Focusing on selected realizations of the opera in Paris, London and New York, Christoforidis and Kertesz explore the cycles of influence between the opera and its parodies; adaptations in spoken drama, ballet and film; and the panorama of flamenco, Spanish dance, and musical entertainments. Their findings also uncover Carmen's dynamic interaction with issues of Hispanic identity against the backdrop of Spain's changing international fortunes. The Spanish response to this now most-Spanish of operas is illuminated by its early reception in Madrid and Barcelona, adaptations to local theatrical genres, and impact on Spanish composers of the time. A series of Spanish Carmens, from opera singers Elena Sanz and Maria Gay to the infamous music-hall star La Belle Otero, had a crucial influence on the interpretation of the title role. Their stories provide a fresh context for the book's reappraisal of leading Carmens of the era, including Emma Calv� and Geraldine Farrar.

Flamenco Nation

by Sandie Holguín, Flamenco Nation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Flamenco Nation books, How did flamenco—a song and dance form associated with both a despised ethnic minority in Spain and a region frequently derided by Spaniards—become so inexorably tied to the country’s culture? Sandie Holguín focuses on the history of the form and how reactions to the performances transformed from disgust to reverance over the course of two centuries. Holguín brings forth an important interplay between regional nationalists and image makers actively involved in building a tourist industry. Soon they realized flamenco performances could be turned into a folkloric attraction that could stimulate the economy. Tourists and Spaniards alike began to cultivate flamenco as a representation of the country's national identity. This study reveals not only how Spain designed and promoted its own symbol but also how this cultural form took on a life of its own.

Gozos Y Ocios De La Mujer Moderna

by Jordi Luengo López, Gozos Y Ocios De La Mujer Moderna Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gozos Y Ocios De La Mujer Moderna books, En todas las épocas, siempre ha habido un arquetipo de mujer "adelantada a su tiempo" incapaz de amoldarse al discurso predominante y valiéndose de los "espacios dialécticos" que se le ha dejado o concedido para construir el suyo propio. El contexto en que se "expresa" ese estereotipo de mujer lo denominamos bohemia, siendo éste un espacio donde, entre gozos y ocios, se perfilan los prolegómenos de las nuevas libertades femeninas. En ese sentido, podemos hablar de la existencia de "mujeres modernas" que, siendo la sinécdoque de la propia modernidad, contribuyeron con su modo de transgredir estético a la pausada emancipación del colectivo femenino, aunque, en ellas, no necesariamente tenía por qué haber una "conciencia feminista" de que así estuvieran actuando.
