Opera has always generated strong, uncompromising views and opinions. For example, what was the idea behind Gluck's Reform operas? How did Mozart himself view his collaboration with the librettist Lorenzo da Ponte? What is the legacy of Maria Callas? These are among the myriad questions that are addressed in this collection of writings about opera--in theory, in practice, in review and in fiction--all drawn from prime sources by music critic Tom Sutcliffe. As Philip Hensher wrote in the London Evening Standard, "[This] anthology ... reminds you why you liked opera in the first place."--Publisher description.
