Reviews

This outstanding reference, based on the four-volume New Grove Dictionary of Opera, has been revised to create an accessible resource for opera enthusiasts without compromising its scholarly substance. Sadie (Mozart: The Early Years) and Macy (ed., The Grove Book of Opera Singers) bring together initialed contributions from nearly 75 authorities. The resulting 264 multipage entries-four of which are entirely new, including Poul Ruders's A Handmaids Tale-are organized alphabetically by title. A vital reference on the subject. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
