Product description


"McGeary's argument is convincing throughout not only because he argues his points with great consistency, but because he documents them meticulously with evidence from an unusually large number of both primary and secondary sources."
The Newsletter of the Society for Eighteenth-Century Music

"... [a] detailed and well-referenced study ... it is certain to become essential reading not only for those interested in new directions for Handel scholarship but also for anyone with an interest in better understanding the impact of the turbulent political times on the cultural life of early eighteenth-century London."
Andrew Pink, Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Theatre Research

Book Description

Thomas McGeary's book examines how events at the Haymarket opera theatre were exploited in partisan politics during the ministry of Robert Walpole and Handel's greatest period of opera production. It will appeal to all those interested in opera, British history and the history of music and theatre.
