Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Black Dog Opera Library is the best, easiest and most informative and budget-friendly way to enjoy four of the greatest operas of all time.

Finally available again, and packaged with gorgeous new covers, are four of the most popular operas in the Black Dog Opera Library: Carmen, La Bohème, La Traviata, and The Marriage of Figaro.

Each book in the library includes the complete opera on 2 CDs, featuring world-class performances and orchestras; the complete libretto, plus its English translation; an exciting history of the opera; a biography of the composer; a synopsis of the story, broken down by act and scene; and dozens of photographs and drawings depicting performances, singers, sets, costumes, and more.

Carmen features Grace Bumbry, Jon Vickers, Mirella Freni, and Kostas Paskalis, with Rafael Fru¨beck de Burgos conducting the Orchestra of the Théâtre National de l'Opéra.

La Bohème features Nicolai Gedda and Mirella Freni, with Thomas Schippers conducting the Orchestro e Coro del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma.

La Traviata features Beverly Sills, Nicolai Gedda, and Rolando Panerai, with Aldo Ceccato conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Marriage of Figaro features Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Heather Harper, Judith Blegen, Geraint Evans, Teresa Berganza, and Birgit Finnilä, with Daniel Barenboim conducting the English Chamber Orchestra.

Listen. Enjoy. Learn.

Also available as individual titles.

About the Author

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was a prolific and influential composer. Since its first performance in 1791, The Magic Flute has been a crowd pleasing opera and it remains one of the most celebrated in its genre.
Tosca is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini based on the Victorien Sardou's dramatic play La Tosca. Tosca is dramatic and beautiful. To this day it is one of the most frequently preformed operas.

Georges Bizet was a French composer, mainly of operas. In a career cut short by his early death, he achieved few successes before his final work, Carmen, became one of the most popular and frequently performed works in the entire opera repertory.

Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi was an Italian Romantic composer primarily known for his operas.
