Vincenzo Bellini on Stage and Screen, 1935â"2020 offers nine case studies of the history of Vincenzo Belliniâs operas on stage, on screen, and in sound, video and performance art. This investigation begins in 1935, the hundredth anniversary of the composerâs death and the year when his first biopic was released, and ends in 2020, when performance artist Marina Abramovicâs âopera projectâ 7 Deaths of Maria Callas, whose final scene is accompanied by Belliniâs famous aria âCasta Diva,â was premiered.

In Part One, several recent productions of La sonnambula, Norma and I Puritani are discussed from different perspectives, but the common focus is on the possible meanings of these works for contemporary spectators. Part Two, centered on cinema, includes chapters on biopics of Bellini that make extensive use of his music, as well as on the presence of this music in soundtracks of films from the last half century. Part Three turns to other media or mixtures of stage and screen, and focuses on Bellini in sound and video art of the last few decades, on YouTube and its fandom, and on 7 Deaths of Maria Callas.

The volume offers an expansive view of the many ways in which Belliniâs operas have been visualized and conceptualized over the past century, and of what they may have meant, and may still mean, for twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture.
