Information
This is a fully revised and updated edition of the most comprehensive single-volume opera encyclopedia ever published.

In the course of hundreds of meticulously researched articles, the book explores the complete operas of figures as diverse as Bellini and Britten, Handel and Hindemith, Massenet and Monteverdi, Rameau and Rossini, Weber and Weill. It also offers fresh insights into perennial favourites as Mozart, Verdi and Wagner; and examines stage works by composers not primarily remembered for their operas - Schumann, Faure and Schoenberg among them.

The book also brings the reader right up to date with the latest operas by contemporary composers worldwide. In all is discusses nearly 850 composers and looks in detail at around 2,000 works. For the enthusiast or novice, amateur or professional, this is the ideal source of information and insight. It brings alive the entire rich and varied tapestry of opera, from its beginnings four hundred years ago right up to the present day.
