Riassunto: From Don Giovanni to Wozzeck, Purcell to Glass, Goethe to Brecht, and Callas to Bartoli, this book offers a comprehensive and accessible guide to the history of opera. Organized chronologically by era, it begins with the roots of opera in classical times and ends with the numerous changes in style and subject in the 20th century. General editor Stanley Sadie draws on the expertise of a wide range of professional writers, educators, and musicians to place the rise of the operatic tradition in its social and cultural contexts. Unique to this encyclopedia are the six thematic strands developed throughout the book-opera houses, stage and scene, the voice, techniques, performances, and popular melody-which allow readers to read sequentially or to follow a single theme.
L'autore: Stanley Sadie was the music critic for The Times of London for 17 years and the editor of The Musical Times for 20 years.
