Synopsis:

In "Ticket to the Opera," Phil G. Goulding makes the magic and mystique of opera accessible to all. Here he offers a complete operatic education, including history, definitions of key musical terms, opera lore and gossip, portraits of famous singers and the roles they immortalized, as well as pithy introductions to the greatest operas of Europe and America and their composers. The book's centerpiece is what Goulding terms "the collection" — 85 classics, among them Aida, The Marriage of Figaro, Carmen, and Madama Butterfly, that have been packing the world's opera houses since their premieres. This entertaining, meticulously researched book also covers American and twentieth-century operas.

Curious neophytes, music lovers interested in branching out, and aficionados eager to compare notes with a brilliant fellow opera buff will prize "Ticket to the Opera" as an essential volume in their music libraries.
