Description: The refreshingly readable guide to the whole world of opera, available in paperback for the first time. Perfect for opera buffs, and opera novices.

Sir Denis Forman has provided the least intimidating guide to opera yet. With a lively and stylish pen, Sir Denis, who for nine years was deputy chairman of the Royal Opera House in London, dispenses his opinions freely on operas and their composers and artistic interpreters. He has taken the eighty-three most popular operas on CD (from Cilea's Adriana Lecouvreur to Mozart's Die Zauberflote) and detailed each plot, explaining what is happening at any given moment and highlighting parts worth special attention. He explains the historical circumstances of the works and grades them from alpha to gamma (apart from the Ring cycle, which receives an X).

A Night at the Opera also includes brief biographies of the great composers, conductors, and artists; a glossary of musical terms; and a guide to "Oprania" -- the special world of opera.

This is an entertaining and informative guide to opera, and a subject of ready reference and lively debate for years to come.
