Prima Donna by Megan Chance Summary

Opera singer Sabine Conrad is the toast of nineteenth-century New York high society. A celebrated soprano with the voice of an angel, she is showered with adulation by her audiences and courted by wealthy patrons. But behind the scenes, her every move is controlled by a Svengali-like manager, Gideon Price. When her attempt to escape him goes tragically awry, she flees, leaving behind a grisly murder. Three years later, as Marguerite Olson, she has put aside the prima donna she once was to run a low-class theater in Seattle. Hidden among prostitutes, drunks, and miners, a desperate and determined Marguerite carefully guards the secrets of her old life—until her past returns to offer a terrifying proposition. Prima Donna captures both the glittering decadence of New York and the rough raunchy waterfront of Seattle, as Marguerite, caught between two worlds, must find the strength to confront the truth of her past and choose which voice defines her in this dark and harrowing novel.

Der neue Dr. Laurin 30 – Arztroman by Viola Maybach Summary

Beatrice Medo, Star des Ballettensembles von Julian Petterson, tanzt ihre letzte Rolle, die Doppelrolle Odile/Odette in "Schwanensee" – aber nur sie selbst weiß, dass sie danach aufhören wird. Sie ist auf dem Höhepunkt ihres Könnens, sie spürt ihren Körper, sie will nicht weitermachen, bis er sie im Stich lässt. Sie liebt Julian, aber er weiß es nicht. Er liebt sie, aber sie weiß es nicht. Sie hofft, ohne es sich einzugestehen, auf die Zeit nach ihrer Bühnenkarriere. Die Premiere wird ein glanzvolles, außergewöhnliches Ereignis, weil Beatrice über sich hinauswächst – und dann passiert, buchstäblich in der letzten Sekunde, ein Unglück auf der Bühne! Julian Petterson beobachtete das junge Paar am Rande der Bühne unauffällig. Er studierte mit seinem Ballettensemble "Schwanensee" von Tschaikowski ein, zur Abwechslung wieder einmal ein klassisches Ballett. Sie brachten vornehmlich moderne Stücke zur Aufführung, aber das Publikum liebte nun einmal die Klassiker, und er konnte das sogar verstehen. Die Musik von ›Schwanensee‹ war betörend, die Tänze waren es auch. Dabei fand er eigentlich, dass auch eine Kunst wie das Ballett die Gegenwart abbilden sollte, aber diese war eben nicht so verführerisch wie das Märchen von der in einen Schwan verzauberten Prinzessin, die schließlich durch die Liebe erlöst wird. Seine Idee für die nächste Produktion war hingegen eher bedrückend: Ihm schwebte eine Liebestragödie zwischen einem schwarzen Flüchtling und einer weißen Frau vor, die in gesicherten Verhältnissen lebte. Er sah die Bilder bereits vor sich ... Sie würden eindrucksvoll sein, aber eher verstörend als verzaubernd. Mit dieser Verstörung waren sein Ensemble und er berühmt geworden. Aber gelegentlich machten sie Ausflüge in die Klassik, um zu beweisen, dass sie diese ebenfalls beherrschten und auch, um sich ein größeres Publikum zu erschließen, was ihnen regelmäßig gelang. Sein Ensemble war dasjenige mit der größten Bandbreite, sie traten in der ganzen Welt auf. Er stellte sehr hohe Anforderungen, bevor er jemanden aufnahm. Wenn er vortanzen ließ, kam es regelmäßig zu Zusammenbrüchen abgelehnter Bewerberinnen und Bewerber. Aber der Erfolg gab ihm Recht. Es gab keine zweite Ballettkompanie wie seine. Er versuchte, diese Gedanken abzuschütteln und sich wieder auf die vor ihm liegende Aufgabe zu konzentrieren. Es würde eine glanzvolle Aufführung von ›Schwanensee‹ werden. Er hatte, wie jeder Künstler, natürlich auch Kritiker, und denen würde er schon zeigen, dass er nicht nur verstören, sondern auch verzaubern konnte. Die Premiere war schon in zwei Wochen, bis dahin lag noch viel Arbeit vor ihnen, aber er hatte ein klares Ziel vor Augen, und er gedachte, es zu erreichen. Das Paar, auf dem seine Augen noch immer ruhten, bestand aus Jana van Eyck, einer zwanzigjährigen Tänzerin mit vermutlich großer Zukunft und dem ebenfalls sehr talentierten André Baum, der zwei Jahre älter war als sie.

Prima Donna by Paul Wink Summary

Prima Donna: The Psychology of Maria Callas explores the psychological mechanisms underlying the hypnotic power of Callas's artistry and the unfolding of her tragic life story. Although precipitated by the trauma and shame that followed her abandonment by Aristotle Onassis and the rapid deterioration of her voice, Callas's midlife disintegration reflects deep psychological vulnerabilities. In this book, Wink utilizes cutting-edge advances in research on developmental psychology and narcissism to shed light on Callas's puzzling personal deterioration during the last nine years of her life. Lacking a cohesive and integrated sense of self, Callas sought affirmation and vitality from adoring audiences and older men including her husband Battista Meneghini and her long-term partner Onassis. The propensity to fuse her identity with stage roles contributed to her artistic greatness, but envy and the lack of an intrinsic sense of meaning and worth intensified her vulnerability to life's vicissitudes. Prima Donna is both a powerful study of Callas's life and a contribution to the greater body of work on the psychology of artists.

The Arts of the Prima Donna in the Long Nineteenth Century by Rachel Cowgill,Hilary Poriss Summary

Female characters assumed increasing prominence in the narratives of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century opera. And for contemporary audiences, many of these characters--and the celebrated women who played them--still define opera at its finest and most searingly affective, even if storylines leave them swooning and faded by the end of the drama. The presence and representation of women in opera has been addressed in a range of recent studies that offer valuable insights into the operatic stage as cultural space, focusing a critical lens at the text and the position and signification of female characters. Moving that lens onto the historical, The Arts of the Prima Donna in the Long Nineteenth Century sheds light on the singers who created and inhabited these roles, the flesh-and-blood women who embodied these fabled "doomed women" onstage before an audience. Editors Rachel Cowgill and Hilary Poriss lead a cast of renowned contributors in an impressive display of current approaches to the lives, careers, and performances of female opera singers. Essential theoretical perspectives reflect several broad themes woven through the volume-cultures of celebrity surrounding the female singer; the emergence of the quasi-mythical figure of the diva; explorations of the intricate and sundry arts associated with the prima donna, and with her representation in other media; and the diversity and complexity of contemporary responses to her. The prima donna influenced compositional practices, determined musical and dramatic interpretation, and affected management decisions about the running of the opera house, content of the season, and employment of other artists--a clear demonstration that her position as "first woman" extended well beyond the boards of the operatic stage itself. The Arts of the Prima Donna in the Long Nineteenth Century is an important addition to the collections of students and researchers in opera studies, nineteenth-century music, performance and gender/sexuality studies, and cultural studies, as well as to the shelves of opera singers and enthusiasts.

Prima Donna at Large by Barbara Paul Summary

A headstrong young soprano must solve a murder to save her friend The Metropolitan Opera has no time for illness. So when its principal baritone succumbs to a head cold on the eve of Carmen, house diva Geraldine Farrar doesn’t hesitate to recommend a replacement: the hungry young American Jimmy Freeman. He’s raw, talented, and desperately in love with her—something she doesn’t mind at all. But when Freeman is passed over in favor of Philippe Duchon, a legendary baritone fleeing World War I, the young man is shattered, and the stage is set for tragedy. A throat spray laced with ammonia destroys Duchon’s vocal chords, finishing his career once and for all. But who poisoned his spray? While everyone in the company loathed Duchon, Freeman and Farrar are the obvious suspects. To clear their names, the thoroughly modern prima donna who brought flapper-style to the Metropolitan stage will kick up her heels and get to work. Prima Donna at Large is the 2nd book in the Opera Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Callas: Portrait of a Prima Donna by George Jellinek Summary

Maria Callas was the most glamorous, idolized and criticized operatic figure of our time. Loved or hated, no singer inspired so much discussion, nor exercised as much power at the box office as the “ugly duckling” who triumphed over a bitter childhood to become the Queen of Opera. Written in 1960, this is a portrait of the artist at the height of her fame, and includes an epilogue that extends the story to Callas’ death in 1977 and her posthumous glory. “... a remarkably balanced picture which goes some way towards explaining the burning, never contented determination of the woman... wonderful array of photographs...” — The Guardian “As an artist Maria Callas is greater than the sum of her abilities... Mr. Jellinek has written a very sensible and informative account of her career.” — The New Statesman
