Opera and music theatre
A major part of our catalogue is devoted to books on opera, whether overall histories or detailed views of works by particular composers. Especially innovative is our series Opernführer kompakt (Concise opera guides), which leads general readers through the major works of opera history in compact form with richly-coloured illustrations. It also discusses current opera productions and recordings.
Nothing offers a better a glimpse behind the scenes of the opera business than the experiences of its leading performers. These books also function as how-to manuals for musicians. They are augmented by educational titles on subjects ranging from breathing technique to an Italian language course for musicians.
