Publisher's Summary:
The makers of this dictionary have approached the leading opera historians and critics throughout the world and aim to choose the best writer on each and every topic: scholars who have worked on the composers they are treating and critics who know the works and the artists they are discussing through actual experience in the opera house. The book includes: more than 1800 entries on individual operas of up to 3000 words in length each, 2500 entries on singers and performers, entries for over 3000 composers who have made a contribution of any significance to the literature of opera, articles of all the great opera houses of the world, a series of articles on producers, directors and designers, entries on librettists, and articles on the history and terminology of opera, voice types and vocal terms. By the author of "The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians".
