Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Giacomo Puccini, composer of some of the world s most popular operas, including La Boheme, Tosca, and Madame Butterfly, was also a highly literary person who based his librettos on existing works of literature. This work explores that literary inheritance in an effort to enhance the listener s appreciation of the operatic experience. The author argues that the majority of Puccini s operas compose a grand cycle that finds its roots in the romance genre of 12th century France, serving to celebrate the strong, independent heroine. Via a close examination of the source works, the librettos, and the scores, this book offers fresh perspective on Puccini s legacy. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780786444823
