11Title:  Musical theatre in Europe 1830-1945   
 Creator:  Niccolai, Michela | Rowden, Clair 
 Notes:  From the mid-1800s in Europe there was a vigorous and enthusiastic expansion of diverse forms of musical theatre. The cabarets, music-halls and private theatres rubbed shoulders with the subsidised and official theatres that offered more established types of spectacle, creating a milieu which welcomed a number of new musical and theatrical genres which fed from and into one another. In the midst of this creative dynamism, alongside revues and café-concert spectacles, operetta and its derivative forms took centre stage. Divided into six sections, the volume covers the revue de fin d'année as a theatrical genre which also influenced all other lighter genres in France during its heyday ; dance music in Offenbach's operettas and his musical recreation of the Parisian soundscape ; transformation of the opera repertoire in operetta and revue parodies ; Viennese and English operetta and musical comedy from the end of the 'reign' of Gilbert and Sullivan until the outbreak of World War II ; diverse theatrical practices from Parisian puppet theatre and the posters of musical spectacles in the café conchantant, to contemporary Italian operetta before the rise of Fascism, and its dissemination, via the impresario Vittorio Rosi, in Japan. Includes bibliographical references and index.

14Title:  Joseph Francis Ambrose Jackson manuscripts and notes, 1906, undated   
 Creator:  Jackson, Joseph, 1867-1946 
 Notes:  The collection of manuscripts and notes by Joseph Francis Ambrose Jackson offers insight into Jackson's intellectual activity as a theater historian, and may be used as an integration of the archival material on and by this author currently held by the Historical Society in Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia History Museum. It consists of a manuscript of an unpublished essay on the history of American dramatic literature (dated June 1906), an undated alphabetical listing of American playwrights, a collection of portraits of 18th-century actors, and handwritten notes mostly focused on the musical and theatrical history of pre-and post-revolutionary Philadelphia. These notes, all of which are undated, cover themes such as the history of the Chestnut Street Theatre, the ballad opera The disappointment (1762), and the work of Philadelphia-born playwright Thomas Godfrey (1736-1763), who authored the first American play ever performed by a professional cast (The prince of Parthia, 1767). A smaller set of notes about Anglican priest Myles Cooper (1735-1785), actor John Moody (circa 1727-1812), actor and impresario Thomas Jefferson (1728-1807), playwright George Cockings (died 1802), and other unidentified topics is also part of the collection.

18Title:  Beyond the stage: musical theatre and performing arts between Fin de siècle and the Années folles   
 Creator:  Montemagno, Giuseppe | Niccolai, Michela 
 Notes:  Collected essays. Includes biographical notes on contributors (pages 345-347). Includes bibliographical references (pages [333]-344) and index. A collection of analytical essays, focused on visually spectacular theatre productions in Paris between 1890 and 1930, chosen for their interrogation of the spectacular element, that is to say the performance, as 'a text', equal in status to the music and the literary text. Therefore, the different subject areas proposed in these essays reveal a lesser importance of the subject material set to music by composers but a greater willingness, at the centre of the aesthetic renewal of the time, to try out new musical forms or to adapt traditional structures to new dramatic ends. --
