Italian for Opera Lovers Book Description:

Have you been holding back? Have you always wanted to dip a toe into the seductive world of corpulent divas, voluptuous vowels, spaghetti-like plot twists, and encores that make the crowd shudder with cry after cry of bravissimo? Are you curious to find out just why Mozart would have made a wonderful dinner guest? Have you always wanted to know at what time of day it is inappropriate to order a cappuccino in Italy, or whom you should never greet with a friendly "Ciao!"? Despite its title, Italian for Opera Lovers is geared towards people who may have no experience studying Italian, nor even more than a cursory familiarity with opera. The book is meant as an introduction to the Italian language. As we cover the basics, we will be focusing on close readings from nine Italian operas. It is my hope that this book whets your appetite for more adventures with both Italian and opera--two one-way tickets to a life of passion.
