The Edwardians and the Making of a Modern Spanish Obsession

Kirsty Hooper

Liverpool University Press

Investigates the way that Spain, Spanish culture and Spanish identity were represented on British stages, concert halls and other public and private spaces. Considers the figure of the Spanish dancer as an avatar for the simultaneous decline and persistence of French-mediated Romantic stereotypes in the British imagination. Explores the opportunities for British people to ‘embody’ Spanishness, through performance, fancy dress, and the role of music hall parodies in domesticating Spanish otherness.

Keywords:   Theatre, Music, Dance, Fancy dress, Music hall
