When first published in 1947, A Short History of Opera immediately achieve international status as a classic in the field. Now, more than five decades later, this thoroughly revised and expanded fourth edition informs and entertains opera lovers just as its predecessors have. The fourth edition incorporates new scholarship that traces the most important developments in the evolution of musical drama. After surveying anticipations of the operative form in the lyric theater of the Greeks, medieval dramatic music, and other forerunners, the book reveals the genre's beginnings in the seventeenth century and follows its progress to the present day. A SHort History of Opera examines not only the standard performance repertoire, but also works considered important for the genre's development. Its expanded scope investigates opera from Eastern European countries and Finland. The section on twentieth-century opera has been reorganized around national operatic traditions, including a chapter devoted solely to opera in the United States that incorporates material on the American musical and ties between classical opera and popular musical theater. A separate section on Chinese opera is also included. With an extensive multilanguage bibliography, more than one hundred musical examples, and stage illustrations, this authoritative one-volume survey will be invaluable to students and serious opera buffs. New fans will also find it highly accessible and informative. Extremely thorough in its coverage. A Short History of Opera is now more than ever the book to turn to for anyone who wants to know about the history of this art form.… (mais)

A note to the cautious -- while this book is called a "short history," it is anything but. Actually a rather hefty book. ( )

An outstanding production, the one-volume version. A model of scholarship rendered accessible to the layperson. Particularly good on the early centuries; at the time I first read this book, the boom in recording of Monteverdi, Lully, Cavalli, etc. had not occured, so my eyes were all but caked shut to the existence of opera pre-Handel. I should probably update my copy of this book, since I think a 2003 version has been issued (as well as a now-superceded 1988 edition). ( )
