"In this extraordinary collection, distinguished musicologists, historians, theater professionals, and luminaries of the operatic stage reflect on three diverse moments of European history - 1800, 1900, 2000 - through the refracting prism of Puccini's Tosca, providing multidimensional images of each period from a wide range of perspectives" (from front flap).
