The Rough Guide to Opera is a unique handbook on the most thrilling of art forms, spanning nearly four centuries of music drama. Features include biographical sketches of some 150 composers, from Claudio Monteverdi to Thomas Ades, detailing the main events of their careers while revealing their social and musical context; entertaining accounts of hundreds of operas, both famous and obscure, with a clear synopsis and a concise essay for each; incisive CD reviews, covering not just the latest digital recording but also dozens of classic historical sets; and a who's who of the finest singers on record, from Caruso and Ponselle, through divas such as Callas and Joan Sutherland, to present-day stars like Jose Cura and Angela Gheorghiu.
