9780521426978: Singers of Italian Opera: The History of a Profession

Adelina Patti was the most highly regarded singer in the 19th century. She earned nearly $5000 a night and had her own railway carriage; yet during the same period a minor comic singer would perform for the cost of his food and a pair of shoes to wear on stage. John Rosselli's wide-ranging study introduces all those singers, members of the chorus as well as stars, who have sung Italian opera from 1600 to the twentieth century. Singers are shown slowly emancipating themselves from dependence on great patrons and entering the dangerous freedom of the market. Securely rooted in painstaking scholarship and sprinkled with amusing anecdotes, this is a book to fascinate and inform opera fans at all levels.

Book Description:

Despite the obvious risks, many singers slowly emancipated themselves from dependence on great patrons to pursue the dangerous freedom of the market. Their stories are included in this wide-ranging study of all the artists who have sung Italian opera from 1600 to the twentieth century.

Review:

"Relating the four-century history of singers in Italian opera may seem a bit daunting in such a relatively brief number of pages, but Rosselli more than succeeds....Everyone loves a good story and there are many here. The scholarship is solid and the writing is excellent, never pedantic. Give yourself a treat. Give yourself this book." American Record Guide

"...essential reading for anyone who wishes to truly understand the nature of this profession." Pan Pipes of Sigma Alpha Iota

"...a magnificent book." The Times Literary Supplement

"...a storehouse of information, skillfully organised, attractively presented." BBC Music Magazine

"A marvelous cultural study and this reviewer's favorite new opera book in recent years." Choice
