    Beginning with a time chart from 1600 to 1970, this handy guide manages to be full of anecdote and little-known facts as well as offering a broad introduction to opera. After synopses of 50 favourite operas, arranged chronologically from Monteverdi's Coronation of Poppea to A Midsummer Night's Dream by Britten, Anna Selby profiles opera's greatest composers, its finest singers and legendary figures among conductors, librettists and directors.
