David Charlton\'s study comprehensively re-examines this period, from Rameau to Gluck, and elucidates the long-term issues surrounding opera. Taking Rousseau\'s Le Devin du village as one narrative centrepiece, Charlton investigates this opera\'s origins and influences in the 1740s and goes on to use past and present research to create a new structural model that explains the elements of reform in Gluck\'s trag\u00E9dies for Paris. Charlton\'s book opens many new perspectives on the musical practices and politics of the period, including the Querelle des Bouffons. It gives the first details account of intermezzi and opere buffa performed by Eustachio Bambini\'s troupe at the Paris Op\u00E9ra from August 1752 to March 1754, and discusses Rameau\'s comedies Plat\u00E9e and Les Paladins, and their origins.\"--Back cover.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/1119717594<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/1119717594#Series\/cambridge_studies_in_opera<\/a>> ; # Cambridge studies in opera.<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Opera in the age of Rousseau : music, confrontation, realism<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"795504222<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780521887601<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0umbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBB264533<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/795504222<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
