On July 14, 1789, a crowd of angry French citizens en route to Bastille broke into the Paris Opera and helped themselves to any sturdy weapons they could find. This title tells the story of how this legendary opera house, despite being a lightning rod for charges of tyranny and waste, weathered the dramatic political upheaval in European history.

Portrait

Victoria Johnson is assistant professor of organizational studies at the University of Michigan.
