Papageno : Emanuel Schikaneder, man of the theater in Mozart's time by Kurt Honolka( Book )

19 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emanuel Schikaneder (1751-1812) is well known to opera lovers as the librettist of Mozart's The Magic Flute, and it was this collaboration that brought him a measure of immortality. Yet he was the most important theater director of his time, an actor, singer, producer, the founder of the famous Theater an der Wien, and a prolific dramatist. His works include magic farces, realistic popular plays, even precursors of surrealist drama. He was a fascinating personality who led a life full of adventure: he lived in a castle at the height of his powers, but died in misery and madness in a tiny room in Vienna. This compelling story of Schikaneder's life also sheds light on the historical, sociological, and theatrical developments of his time."--Jacket

"This is the first biography of the famous Czech composer Antonı́n Dvǒŕak to be published in English in more than a decade, released on the centenary of his death.

Honolka sets the scene for Dvǒŕak's "American" music and his return from the United States, providing a context for his most famous work, the Ninth Symphony From the New World."--BOOK JACKET
