Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I suppose if you're really new to opera, or would like to have a book around to quote definitions from this is a good book to have around, however as someone who is a step above neophyte and a (few) step(s) below expert, there are rare words in the book I couldn't give you the definition to without the book. There is a serious lack of musical terms in the book too. It's been a while since I've looked, but I don't think for instance the word portamento is in the book, which does seem like somewhat of an oversight.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Charles L. DeFanti Jr. on May 25, 2001
Format: Paperback
This small, inexpensive reference work, revised and updated by Professor Jack Kamerman, is enlivened by Osborne's wit and a wonderful trove of photographs. For the specialist and non-specialist, this is the first place to turn.
