Product Description


This survey of the Bel Canto operas, an 18th-century form of opera with an emphasis on perfect technique and beautiful tone, describes the recent revival in their popularity after years of being overshadowed by later works by Verdi and Puccini. The text also provides a discussion of the operas by Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini.
