The Operas of Verdi

Volume 1: From Oberto to Rigoletto

Revised Edition

Julian Budden

A Clarendon Press Publication

Oxford proudly issues in paperback this monumental study of Verdi's entire operatic achievement.
Marked by extraordinary research, enhanced by hundreds of musical illustrations, these volumes cover, in detail, Verdi's operas from the early Oberto to his final opera, Falstaff. Budden's extensive research in European archives has enabled him to shed new light on the interpretation of Verdi's work and has yielded much new material, including an unpublished additional aria for I Due Foscari. These volumes have received excellent critical attention and Budden was awarded two British literary awards for his achievements.
