Since its origins in the 16th century, opera has been an extravagant, costly affair, arousing great passions. It has also produced some of the most sublime works of art, from Monteverdi to Wagner. Following the widely acclaimed History of classical music, Richard Fawkes traces the history of opera up to the present day on the first three parts; and devote the fourth to the history of operetta.
