Description
What makes good opera? Jeffrey Langford, a lecturer at the Manhattan School of Music and host of pre-performance talks at the Metropolitan Opera Guild, here examines the operas that have stood the test of time and entered the standard repertoire. Taking a thematic approach, Langford engages the reader in the exploration of how the shifting aesthetics of opera from one composer to another, one country to another, and one era to another have resulted in vastly different solutions to the problem of how to make what the Italians first called dramma per musica. Langford analyzes specific issues of musical form, style, and technique to shed new light on the perennial question of "how opera (sometimes) works."
