This volume illuminates the characters and plot scenarios that inspired Verdi, one of the greatest composers of opera. Organized alphabetically, the 250-plus entries cover each opera and its characters and include detailed synopses, information about the source of the libretto, and first performance and cast list. Arguing that words are responsible for the musical design of the operas, freelance author Lewsey highlights the importance of the texts that inspired the music, with particular emphasis upon the motivation of each character.
