In his 'middle period', the composer Verdi was responsible for the creation of three of opera's great works, "Rigoletto", "Trovatore", and "Traviata". This volume examines the history of composition, of performance, and the sourcing of each of these masterpieces. The author also provides analysis of the musical and dramatic accompaniments for each work as well as the ways in which their presentation has changed over time. Also included are annotations and an index of operas and composers as well as discographies and videographies with critical analysis.
Clyde T. McCants is the author of several opera books. A retired minister, he lives in Winnsboro, South Carolina.
