Abstract
This book is a study of the construction of gender and desire in trouser roles in both spoken theatre and opera.The long-term presence of cross-dressing in Western theatre history and its specific articulations in performanings arts have been an important part of the discourse in Gender Studies since the 1980's. The trouser role, a woman en travesti, literally in male drag, sings and looks like (in theory at least)a man, but sounds like and in fact, is, a woman. This act of cross-dressing makes same-sex desire visible and leads to a number of questions, which many have contemplated upon but few have cared (or dared) to answer.
