L'univers de l'OpéraSold by Opéra National de Paris
DescriptionThe 2,000 or so entries that make up L'Univers de l'opéra, directed by Bertrand Dermoncourt, are devoted to the main works in the repertoire, to the different genres of the operatic art (Grand Opera, comic opera, operetta, American musicals.), to those who make opera (composers, authors, singers, directors.), to the countries, cities and festivals that host performances, to the technical terms (relating to voice, costumes, sets, buildings.), to the major historical, mythological and sociological syntheses. The book also gives pride of place to the reception and posterity of the works (recordings, recordings, publications and cinema in particular).
This dictionary differs from and complements Tout l'opéra de Kobbé (regularly republished in "Bouquins" since 1980), which analyses the works and the conditions of their creation.
