Puccini Without Excuses
A Refreshing Reassessment of the World's Most Popular Composer
Puccini is the most beloved composer of opera in the world. But, although Puccini's art still captivates audiences and the popularity of such works as Tosca, La Bohéme, and Madama Butterfly has never waned, he has long been a victim of critical snobbery and cultural marginalization.
In this witty and informative guide for beginners and fans alike, William Berger sets the record straight, reclaiming Puccini as a serious artist.
