"The New Music Theater is the first comprehensive attempt in English to cover a still-emerging art form in its widest range. This book, written for the reader who comes from the contemporary worlds of music, theater, film, literature, and visual arts, provides a wealth of examples and descriptions, not only of the works themselves but of the concepts, ideas and trends that have gone into the evolution of what may be the most central performance art form of the post-modern world."--BOOK JACKET.
