    This is a solid book that provides the uick dirty on opera with regard to a historical overview a breakdown of the different styles vocab and sections dedicated to profiles of the greatest singers composers and opera works It's written by a diehard opera lover who makes an effort to show that your enthusiasm for opera if you should happen to develop it should come from the heart and from listening to what moves you on an emotional level rather than what textbooks and published critics tell you is the best I think that's a really great approach for an introduction to an art that the overwhelming majority of newbies are going to think is stuffypretentiousirrelevantboring This book does a great of making the case for opera as vital passionate and not that far removed from the great singing in the RB gospel big band show tunes jazz traditions Fair warning this book was written in 1995 by a dude who was then in his 50s or 60s and boy is is NOT PC There are freuent references to bimbos broads bitches he jokingly asks if Maria Callas was retarded there are some lascivious asides about some romantic operas plots etc etc I'd let any one or even a few of these slide based on it being a different time if there weren't so many instances Toward the end you kind of have to suppress an eye roll on every other page but if you want to get the basics on opera along with some great listening recommendations I'd say go for it

    Sex is repressed opera Sigmund Floyd as uoted in this book Unfortunately not everyone buys this statement Indeed in many circles the love of opera is regarded as inexplicably weird For those people this book was written After all what is life without opera? All one need to do is open oneself to itThis is a delightful and humorous booklet written as an introduction to opera but probably commonly read by people who value the highest form of entertainment already The book is full of anecdotes and stories about opera and about those involved in and with its many facets I heartedly recommend it to all opera lovers to all opera haters and also to anyone why likes a good laugh

    Excellent introduction to history theory and type; with a guide to major works Ron David could stand to interject his politics a little less into the writing esp when they have nothing to do with the subject at hand Also some of the historicalpolitical asides if they have to be left in could do with a little nuance Never the less a great intro easy to read and to understand
