Divas and scholars : performing Italian opera by Philip Gossett( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Divas and Scholars is a beguiling account of how opera comes to the stage, filled with Philip Gossett's personal experiences of triumphant - and even failed - performances and suffused with his towering and tonic passion for music. Writing as a fan, a musician, and a scholar, Gossett, the learning authority on the performance of Italian opera in the entire world, brings to life the problems, and occasionally the scandals, that attend the production of some of the world's favorite operas. Gossett begins by tracing the social history of nineteenth-century Italian theaters in order to explain the nature of the musical scores from which performers have long worked. He then illuminates the often hidden but crucial negotiations that go on between opera scholars and opera conductors and performers."--Jacket
