This volume brings together ten essays focusing on the
diversity of operatic institutions, their protagonists, and
historical fortunes in Europe from 1730 to 1917. Its aim is
not to understand operatic institutions as locally distinct
and isolated organizations, but rather to perceive them as a
part of a historically fluctuating, transnational network: a
network that was shaped among other things by individual
professionals and groups in the opera business (and beyond),
as well as by specific socio-cultural and political
surroundings. The volume offers new perspectives on a wide
range of topics, including networks of cultural exchange,
singers as agents in shaping institutional structures, and
the influence of socio-cultural, diplomatic, and political
factors on operatic production across international borders.
