Giuseppe Verdi

Published by Alma Classics

English National Opera Guides are ideal companions to the opera, providing stimulating introductory articles together with the complete text of each opera in English and the original

In this Guide, Julian Budden reviews the difficulties that faced the management that had commissioned La Traviata and how, in some previously unpublished letters, Verdi fought their views on casting the leading lady

Denis Arnold contributes a musical commentary and April FitzLyon discusses the social background of the 'lady of the camellias' in fact, fiction and on the stage

Nicholas John compares the libretto with the play to show how skilfully it was adapted for the operatic stage
