Paul Atkinson explores the remarkable world of opera through his fieldwork with the internationally known Welsh National Opera company. He demonstrates how cultural phenomena are produced and enacted by taking us on stage and behind the scenes into the collective social action that goes into the realization of an opera. Atkinson's work will appeal to anthropologists and sociologists who study the performance arts, as well as to those engaged in theatre arts, opera, and music.

Introducing performances -- Performing opera in theory and practice -- Performance and the practical management of dramaturgy -- Performing characters and meanings -- Performing The queen of spades -- Performing the company -- Performing lives and voices -- Performing mundane ecstasy -- Appendix : the operas
