From the Publisher:
Adelina Patti was the most highly regarded singer in the 19th century. She earned nearly $5000 a night and had her own railway carriage; yet during the same period a minor comic singer would perform for the cost of his food and a pair of shoes to wear on stage. John Rosselli's wide-ranging study introduces all those singers, members of the chorus as well as stars, who have sung Italian opera from 1600 to the twentieth century. Singers are shown slowly emancipating themselves from dependence on great patrons and entering the dangerous freedom of the market. Securely rooted in painstaking scholarship and sprinkled with amusing anecdotes, this is a book to fascinate and inform opera fans at all levels.Adelina Patti was the most highly regarded singer in the 19th century.
