The Birth of an Opera offers illuminating insight into how operas are written and the personalities, incidents, and musical circumstances that have shaped their composition.

Rather than re-treading familiar ground with pages of historical and musical analysis, (Michael) Rose places each  opera firmly in the context of the composer's life and provides an engaging text in which the varied and colourful personalities involved are seen to discuss, comment, and contribute in one way or another to the progress of its composition.
