Now in paperback! Reliable and up-to-date information on more than 275 operas to assist the producers in selecting work appropriate to needs and resources. The book is divided into two parts-those operas with librettos written in English and those with librettos translated into English. Entries are listed alphabetically by composer and include detailed information that includes title, subtitles, alternate titles, the date created, the date and location of the first performance, the author and source of the libretto, the approximate duration of a performance, the cast (principal and supporting, singing and non-singing roles), the chorus, ballet or dance requirements, orchestral requirements, piano accompaniment, a description of the dramatic or musical style, the setting, the scenes, a synopsis, production notes, and last-known source of the materials. For the educator, coach, producer, director, conductor, or student, an invaluable resource for comprehensive, difficult-to-find information about this highly adaptable medium. Cloth edition published in 1996.
