The relationships binding opera with medicine are profound. Linda Hutcheon, professor of English and comparative literature, and Michael Hutcheon, professor of medicine, both at the University of Toronto, are uniquely suited to explore the complex and diverse connections between the two. In Bodily Charm: Living Opera, the authors continue the novel delineation of opera-medicine linkages begun in Opera: Desire, Disease, Death,1 a work of great interest to physicians who love opera.
