Description - Italian Opera Since 1945 by Raymond Fearn
Italy was the birthplace of opera in the late 16th century, and has in recent decades seen significant growth, with composers as diverse as Luciano Berio and Nino Rota, Luigi Nono and Sylvano Bussotti. The musical theatre has figured prominently in the work of Italian composers during this period, ranging from operas of the traditional mode to popular or avant-garde musicals. Fearn surveys this Italian musico-theatrical phenomenon, examining a range of works such as Nono's "Intolleranza" and Berio's "Passagio", and placing these developments within a cultural and theatrical context. Numerous musical examples and production photographs are included.
