The Castrato and His Wife
Description:
a fascinating account of how masculinity, femininity and marriage were being reshaped in 18th-century Europe just when modernity was taking shape. (Washington Post )Writing clearly, judiciously, and sympathetically about all the dramatis personae, especially the heroic but improvident Tenducci, who retained his professional stature throughout, Berry rescues an eighteenth-century scandal from oblivion. Utterly enthralling. (Blooklist )an exhilarating read (History Today )a fascinating take that just begs to be read. (Northern Echo )By using classical opera and the life and loves of a prominent castrato as a lens, Berry explores the themes of romance, sex and marriage, and more broadly, 19th-century European social life and customs. Recommended for readers who enjoy opera, classical music in general, and European history. (Library Journal )Berry, who places this fascinating and poignant tale in a fact-rich context, gives a groundbreaking, nuanced analysis of 18th-century sexuality. (The Herald (Glasgow) )deploying her considerable skills as a historian and writer to re-create with panache the world in which Dorothea and Tenducci both flourished and floundered. (The Sunday Times )compelling book (The Independent on Sunday )fascinating book (We Love This Book )spirited biography (Sunday Times {Culture} )This is a well-researched story of a very unique arrangement (The Resident )Berry is fascinating (Daily Express )Berry was right to attempt this book, whose content is unique and effect unsettling and thought-provoking. (Sunday Telegraph {Seven} )Bravo (Classic FM Magazine )
