Description
Surveying the history of opera from its humble beginnings in 16th-century Venice through the extravaganzas of the late 20th century, this history profiles the composers, performers, and designers who have made the greatest contributions to the art form. The book's 253 illustrations—including 25 in color—depict the glamorous divas, extravagant costumes, and opulent opera houses that embody the immortal works of Monteverdi, Mozart, Gluck, Wagner, Verdi, and Puccini. This succinct volume presents opera as a dynamic, ever-evolving medium that has lost none of its vitality over the past 400 years.
