Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The question whether the text, music, singers, or setting is the most important feature of an opera has long been debated. At one time, the courts of Vienna and Munich imported Italian opera before the German language gained acceptance. Once established, German opera, from Mozart to Schoenberg, reached the highest peak--as seen in the libretti of this volume.

Synopsis:

Foreword by Jost Hermand

The libretti of the greatest German operas: Mozart's The Magic Flute, Beethoven's Fidelio, Wagner's Parsifal, Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier, and Schoenberg's Moses and Aron.
