    Here is the colorful story of sometimes temperamental composers and even more temperamental singers working in an art form which has produced some of man's noblest artistic creations. This absorbing history is illustrated by over 100 musical examples by Naxos artists as well as some of the greatest singers of the 20th century, including Enrico Caruso and Fyodor Chaliapin.

    Desde suas origens, no século XVI, a ópera sempre foi uma paixão extravagante e cara. Ela também produziu algumas das mais sublimes obras de arte, de Monteverdi a Philip Glass, passando por Mozart, Wagner, Puccini e tantos outros. Com texto original em inglês de Richard Fawkes, este audiolivro conta a história da ópera desde suas origens, abordando a vida e a obra dos grandes compositores. O texto trata também das importantes manifestações na área da opereta.
