Diva by Kate Bailey

Sale price£30.00

Delving into the public and private personas of performers from Jenny Lind to Sarah Bernhardt, Nina Simone to Rihanna, this book looks at what it means to be a diva and how this has been subverted and embraced over time.

Following an essay on the transformation of the diva from 19th-century opera and stage star to 20th-century silent screen siren, six thematic chapters focus on aspects such as costume and attitude, political activism, agency and brand acumen, the pursuit of radical new ways of performing, and more.
