This delightful volume combines the sharp wit and skilled artistry of Gualtiero Bartalini to present hilariously illustrated rhymed rewrites of twenty-seven opera librettos. The forty unforgettable watercolors depict operatic drama in all its glory, while Bartalini's satirical interpretations poke good-natured fun at the unlikely plots and dimwitted protagonists of those usually staid and proper musical extravaganzas. Bartalini was a trained opera singer himself, so he knew well (and loved deeply) that which he cleverly mocked.
