An Introdution to Italian through Opera; Second Edition
Marcel Danesi and Danila De Sousa

Opera has always been the "musical voice" of Italians, expressing their feelings and thoughts, from the trivial to the sublime, from the carnal to the spiritual, from the witty to the most somber, from the jocular to the profound.

But operatic language is often difficult to follow. We have written this book to help opera buffs "crack the code" of Italian operatic language, as they enjoy themselves by listening to, or actually singing, excerpts from the standard repertoire.

So, if you are one of those opera buffs, a student of opera, or simply someone who loves to sing in the shower, but who has little time to spend on long and complicated textbooks, then this is the self–study manual for you!
