Short Desription

First published in 1947 and beloved by generations of students, teachers, and opera lovers, A Short History of Opera begins with opera''s precursors in the lyric theatre of the Greeks, reveals the genre''s beginnings in the seventeenth century, and charts its progress to the present day. An extensive bibliography, musical examples, and illustrations that reveal the importance of stage and scene design enhance the text. For this edition, Williams has added new material on twentieth century music and the American musical, added material on female composers, increased the number of illustrations and examples, and reorganized several chapters for easier reference.
