Description
 
Christopher Morgan. Opera-lover Morgan, wanting to know more about the historical facts on which operatic stories were based, determined to write such a book himself. He discovered that the real story behind the opera libretto is more dramatic than its operatic counterpart. Writers & composers have frequently been inspired by relatively minor historical figures & have turned them into memorable operatic characters. Shows from what obscure sources a major work of imagination can spring. The stories range from 14th cent. Genoa to 19th cent. Paris, & are each accompanied by a brief summary of the operatic plot. The 8 operas are: Simon Boccanegra, Il Trovatore, Rigoletto, Don Carlos, Lucia di Lammermoor, Un Ballo in Maschera, La Traviata, & La Boheme.
