An Invitation to the Opera (Paperback)
By John Louis DiGaetani

John Louis DiGaetani, an English professor at Hofstra University, is the author of numerous books about opera and theater.

In its revised third edition, this volume argues that an appreciation of opera is based on understanding of several key aspects: history, language, theatrical production, the power of the conductor, vocal tradition, and standard repertory. This unique approach is intended for the newcomer curious about the art form. 

The author discusses how opera has changed in the last three decades and how it is now more easily enjoyed than ever before. Originally published in 1986, this book has been translated into four languages and has been used as an “Introduction to Opera” text in college classrooms around the world.
