Description - Music Drama at the Paris Odeon, 1824-1828 by Mark Everist

Parisian theatrical, artistic, social and political life is brought to life in this institutional history of the Paris Odeon, an opera house that flourished during the Bourbon Restoration. The book traces the complete arc of the Odeon's short but highly successful life from ascent to triumph, decline and closure. It outlines the role it played in expanding operatic repertoire and in changing the face of musical life in Paris. Everist reconstructs the political power structures that controlled the world of Parisian music drama, the internal administration of the theatre and its relationship with composers and librettists, and with the city of Paris itself. His depiction of French cultural life and the artistic contexts that allowed the Od on to flourish highlights the benefit of close examination of society's institutions.
