The Birth of an Opera: Fifteen Masterpieces from Poppea to Wozzeck
In the world of opera the voices of librettists and composers, critics and witnesses, have never been so vividly or so ably assembled as in Michael Rose's The Birth of an Opera, which takes the reader into the heart of the process by which great operas are made. These essays bring the composers' partners, friends, enemies, and deepest thoughts to life. It is hard to imagine opera goers who would not be absorbed by the origins and background of their favorite operas, faithfully and lovingly set out as they are here.
