Summary Encompassing 1,800 the new paperback edition of The New Grove Dictionary of Opera is the reference the reference work opera lovers have been waiting for. Featuring discussions and critical essays on more than 3,000 composers and over 2,500 performers, this ultimate companion guide for opera enthusiasts also covers the opera houses, companies, and writers who have made, and continue to make, the medium what it is today. From Homer to Shakespeare to today's brightest innovators, "make no mistake: This will be the definitive reference work in opera for many many years to come" (The Chicago Tribune). Citing librettists and literary sources, landmark opera houses, dries and countries, articles on stagecraft, architecture, and the development of genres, the Dictionary also includes film and musical theater, detailed worklists following each composer and librettist entry, and extensive bibliographies. This most authoritative and comprehensive reference work on opera "will significantly affect not only the way opera is enjoyed in the future, but the way it is made" (The Washington Post). The New Grove Dictionary of Opera contains entries on not only operas and performers, but also set designers and builders, patrons, conductors, and many other topics which contribute to the pomp and pageantry of opera.
