Book Description

The first comprehensive, authoritative guide to all things queer and musical: pop, rock, jazz, disco, dance, opera, and musical theater.

What did Alvin Aileys mother do when she first saw him in stage makeup? Why did George Frideric Handel censor his unpublished pastoral cantatas in the 1730s? How many degrees separate Gore Vidal from Cole Porters 1948 Broadway musical, Kiss Me Kate? Find the answers?and much, much more?in The Queer Encyclopedia of Music, Dance, and Musical Theater.

Drawn from the fascinating online encyclopedia of queer arts and culture, which the Advocate dubbed the "Encyclopedia Britanniqueer"?this compendium of all things queer and beautiful features over 200 articles on composers, choreographers, singers, musicians, and dancers across eras and styles.

Perfect for settling arguments or for a serene hour by a sunny window, this is the kind of reference book you cant tear yourself away from, with authoritative overviews on genres and gay-themed works and biographical entries on figures like Jerome Robbins, No l Coward, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Maurice Ravel, Sergei Diaghilev, Bessie Smith, Stephen Sondheim, Rufus Wainwright, and Ani DiFranco.
