Covering over 1500 singers from the birth of opera to the present
day, this marvelous volume will be an essential resource for all
serious opera lovers and an indispensable companion to the
enormously successful Grove Book of Operas.

The most comprehensive guide to opera singers ever produced, this
volume offers an alphabetically arranged collection of
authoritative biographies that range from Marion Anderson (the
first African American to perform at the Met) to Benedict Zak
(the classical tenor and close friend and colleague of Mozart).
Readers will find fascinating articles on such opera stars as
Maria Callas and Enrico Caruso, Ezio Pinza and Fyodor Chaliapin,
Lotte Lehmann and Jenny Lind, Lily Pons and Luciano Pavarotti.
The profiles offer basic information such as birth date, vocal
style, first debut, most memorable roles, and much more. But
these articles often go well beyond basic biographical
information to offer colorful portraits of the singer's
personality and vocal style, plus astute evaluations of their
place in operatic history and many other intriguing observations.
Many entries also include suggestions for further reading, so
that anyone interested in a particular performer can explore
their life and career in more depth. In addition, there are
indexes of singers by voice type and by opera role premiers. The
articles are mostly drawn from the acclaimed Grove Music Online
and have been fully revised, and the book is further supplemented
by more than 40 specially commissioned articles on contemporary
singers.

A superb new guide from the first name in opera reference, The
Grove Book of Opera Singers is a lively and authoritative work,
beautifully illustrated with color and black-and-white pictures.
It is an essential volume--and the perfect gift--for opera lovers
everywhere.
