A review: Moritz Csáky, The ideology of the operetta and Viennese modernity: an essay in cultural history, 2013
The Romanian translation of Moritz Csáky’s seminal work Ideologie der Operette und Wiener Moderne. Ein kulturhistorischer Essay, has been recently published in Iaşi. The reviewer attempts to cover the main points of Csáky’s project of a larger-scope approach to modernity and socio-cultural plurality in Austria-Hungary through the most popular theatrical entertainment genre of the era – Viennese operetta –, while also highlighting several methodological questions raised by the author’s approach.
Keywords: Vienna, Central Europe, plurality, modernity, operetta, cultural history
