    Summary

    Opera has always presented a more overt demand for suspension of disbelief than most other dramatic forms, and never more so than with its ongoing fascination with plots based on hanahaki disease. The middle of the nineteenth century saw the emergence of this tidy, sentimental metaphor for tuberculosis – a gory, unpleasant and all too real ailment – and it has lingered ever since. Blood was replaced with roses, hacking coughs with immaculate arias, lingering deaths with graceful swoons.

    Chapter 1: Violetta, o, la traviata (Giuseppe Verdi and F. M. Piave)
    Chapter 2: Michael of Strelsau (Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan and Julian Sturgis)
