This tremendous reference is in dictionary style for the easy reference and use by researchers, scholars, and any reader interested in the opera. It is an excellent source for looking up anything from specific data on a particular opera to which aria is connected with which opera. This volume is generously cross-referenced and should prove invaluable in answering many questions on the opera.

Reviews

"This volume, with its 400 plus classical operas listed, and the attendant informational material rounding out the operatic work, is a valuable adjunct to any reference tome in the opera repertory. It deserves a space on the desk of the serious opera buff." - (From the Commendatory Preface) Paul C. Ehrlich, Journalist for various international magazines on arts and culture
