Euryanthe's Silence (link) 1997 - opening pages of  a detailed study on the radical aspects of Carl Maria von Weber's Euryanthe. The importance of text versus the visual in opera generally is questioned; also, how the traditionally understood sense of the story is undermined by the music, with some consequences for interpretation, direction, staging and lighting.  Anyone wishing to read the complete article, should contact the author euryanth@rgraebner.waitrose.com , giving reasons for interest, and an undertaking to acknowledge quotations or
