Too much written about too few operas. Not a comprehensive overview of the wealth of operas that have been written and performed, and dwells on the author's opinions as what constitutes "the Great Operas."

From dustjacket: "A splendid work written to appeal to the ordinary music lover who, though he may be an ardent follower of opera, has neither time, nor opportunity, nor aptitude, to study scores and musical history and biography for himself. The object is to give such a person all the information he requires for a thorough understanding of what is going on in front of him on the stage, or to which he is listening on the radio, so that he may grasp many an intention on the composer's part that, for one reason or another, may not always come out clearly in the presentation. In other words, this book tells the story and analyzes the music of the familiar operas, lucidly, for the layman and yet with such authority and insight that the keenest student of music will find peasure and profit in reading it. The author, Ernest Newman, of the London Sunday Times, is securely established as the most widely read and influential critic of music on either side of the Atlantic. He has been identified with literary and musical work for over thirty years and his writing combines the crispness and decision of a master of his subject with the full flavor of the mature man of letters."
