About this item

In addition to illuminating the role of music and opera in national mobilization in 19th-century Hungary, Lajosi also explores how nationalism affected the recycling and representation of history on the operatic stage. Culture and politics intertwined in complex ways, she says: music served as a mobilizing practice in nation-building movements, while the national idea became a dominant creative force in the musical practice of the era. She covers opera and national consciousness, national opera as a political force, the struggle for a national theater, taking the stage: opera in the Hungarian theater, and Ferenc Erkel's operas Hunyadi László (1844) and Bánk Bán (1861).
