History has long vilified Alma Mahler, accusing her of distracting Gustav Mahler from his work, while her passionate love affairs shocked her peers. Drawing on Alma's overlooked diaries, Cate Haste recounts the untold and far more sympathetic story of this ambitious, talented artist who dreamed of being the first woman to compose a famous opera.
