«<p>"Fascinating details from behind the scenes are uncovered. . . . . Recommended."--<i>Choice</i><br />  </p>»

«A treasury of historical information long unrelated or unknown. . . . This is a most valuable addition to anyone's operatic experience."--<i>American Record Guide</i> »

«A highly readable collection of interesting essays that come to terms with the deeply problematic treatment of black characters by opera composers and librettists and with the exceptional challenges facing black singers on the operatic stage. The volume will appeal to opera lovers and scholars alike."--Michael V. Pisani, author of <i>Imagining Native America in Music</i>»

«Absolutely riveting, full of new information and giving much food for thought."--<i>Opera</i>»

«<i>Blackness in Opera</i> provides an engrossing look into issues that have not been well documented by scholars."--<i>Journal of the Society for American Music</i>»

«An intriguing blend of different methodologies that all coalesce at the examination of how "blackness" is constructed in both canonical and lesser-known operas.  This monograph will no doubt be viewed as one of the hallmarks of musicological scholarship in the years to come."--<i>Women & Music</i><br />»
