The irresistible appeal of Femmes Fatales

The “belle dame sans merci” according to Keats, the seductress who drives men insane and leads them to ruin, is one of the archetypes of the modern collective imagination, pervading literature, theatre, figurative arts, and cinema. Vittoria Crespi's meticulous research into the most famous opera houses of the world has resulted in a gathering of the most beautiful images of enchantresses, who will forever outpour charm and poison, beauty and perdition, on those who are eternally condemned to love them.
