Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This slightly irreverent guide to opera summarizes the plots of 17 of the world's great operas, including Aida, La Boheme, and Carmen, and describes their characters, artists, and composers.

Book News Annotation:

An encyclopedic handbook dissecting the 83 most popular operas recorded on CD, from Cilea's Adriana Lecouvreur to Mozart's Die Zauberflote. For each opera, Sir Denis details the plot and characters in a refreshingly impudent fashion. He also describes the historical background and critical reception of each opera, defines terms, and provides biographies of composers, conductors, and artists.
