Verdi’s Operas
An Illustrated Survey of Plots, Characters, Sources, and Criticism (Book)
by Giorgio Bagnoli

Heralded as a national treasure and venerated for his civic, historical and musical influence, Giuseppe Verdi enjoyed an enviable and almost uninterrupted success with the public throughout his long life, as well as a corresponding posthumous glory that never seems to wane. Celebrations have recently been held around the world to mark the 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth and pay homage to his rich legacy. In Verdi's Operas, every one of the composer’s 26 operas, from Oberto to Falstaff, is studied in detail. In addition to describing each plot act by act, these works are analyzed and placed in the context of history as well as Verdi's creative career.

Bagnoli’s book examines the literary sources, which inspired the maestro's dramaturgy and presents profiles of the librettists, who worked with him at the time.

Lavishly illustrated with striking artwork, photographs and scenes of productions, this unique chronicle of Verdi and his musical genius will delight opera buffs and casual readers alike.
