Promotional Information

This Element explores Walter Mocchi's revolutionary role in opera and musical theatre in South America in the early twentieth century.


'Paoletti demonstrates how Mocchi not only adapts to the changing reality of the industry, but also proposes new business schemes that continually modify the general rules of the game. In a sense, the figure of Mocchi really works as a guide (or an excuse) to understand how the musical theater industry was shaped between Italy and South America in the first decades of the last century.' Pedro Augusto Camerata, Revista Argentina de Musicologia
