Description
From Arabella to Wozzeck, from Aeneas to Zaida, here is an entertaining encyclopedia of more than 2500 operatic characters, along with synopses of 250 major works. Each entry provides a full description of the role, indicates its vocal category, and discusses who first created the part and other notable performers. Previously titled Who's Who in Opera, this revised 2008 edition includes an appendix of contemporary operas with detailed synopses and world premiere cast lists, plus a list of opera-related web links. Readers will find Placido Domingo writing on the character of Otello, perhaps his greatest role; Bryn Terfel writes on Leporello, Janet Baker on Mary Stuart, Thomas Hampson on Posa, and Theodore Uppman on Billy Budd.
