Venice, 1734. Neglecting his vocal practice for dubious pleasures, singer Tito Amato finds himself demoted to secondary roles and overshadowed by a visiting star. When the murder of scene painter Luca Cavalieri threatens to close the opera house, Tito jumps at the chance to regain his worth by finding the killer. Suspicion falls on members of a Jewish ghetto family that produces masks for the theater. But Tito discovers a mysterious veil that leads him in a different direction. Assisted by Augustus Rumbolt, an Englishman making his Grand Tour, Tito is soon on the trail of Dr. Palantinus, a masked figure who heads a secret society that charges exorbitant fees to partake of its enticing rituals. But who is behind the mask of Palantinus? Tito's search for the answer pierces the treacherous depths of a city dedicated to masquerade and pleasure, where ancient hatreds thrive, cultures uneasily coexist, and where opera is the stuff of daily life.

During the final decades of the nineteenth century, a common mind-set emerged among many intellectuals--"la decadence." Many novels and novellas of the period were populated with protagonists who were fragile, refined, self-absorbed, and preoccupied with a trivially exquisite aesthetic. A Baedeker of Decadence presents thirty-two international works of literary decadence written between 1884 and 1927. George C. Schoolfield, a world authority on the decadent novel, offers an entertaining and wide-ranging commentary on this highly significant literary and cultural phenomenon. Schoolfield tracks down the symptoms of decadence in narrative works written in more than a dozen languages, providing synopses and passages in English translation to give a sense of each author's style and tone. Schoolfield throws new light on the close intellectual kinship of authors from August Strindberg to Bram Stoker to Thomas Mann, and on the ingredients, themes, motifs, and preconceptions that characterized decadent literature.

Born in Scotland, Mary Garden was trained in Paris. From the very start of her career she was surrounded by scandal and intrigue, her patron withdrawing funds for her training after hearing rumours of her dissolute behaviour. Nevertheless, Garden's indomitable spirit prevailed through this and other setbacks that were to occur through her life, and she gave her first performance as Louise at the Opera-Comique in 1900, a role that she was always to identify with. Garden's career spanned thirty years and several continents. Constantly in the media spotlight, she courted attention, continually teasing journalists with hints about lovers and offers of marriage. Her outspoken views often resulted in rifts with colleagues, including Tetrazzini and Hammerstein, and her reputation for scandal only increased with the moral outcry that greeted her portrayal of Salome in America in 1909. Even when her career had ended, Garden continued to give lectures and master classes. Some of her notes on stage technique are reproduced here and give fascinating insights into the approach she took to her work.
