Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fourth in a bestselling series from the editor of the unsurpassed New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians.

Book News Annotation:

Though somewhat challenging to navigate as an encyclopedia, this hefty book is enjoyable if approached as a bountiful gallery of photos and color plates of paintings and prints of singers, composers, stage design, and scenes, accompanied by a succinct history. The world of opera is covered in brief strokes, chronologically, describing its composers, writers, and performers, from classical times through the present. The many inset boxes contain synopses of operas and the stories of individual opera houses, designers, types of arias, and related material. The volume is oversize: 10.5x11.5".
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
