Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This volume is the first ever collection of Henry Purcell's opera texts. The much neglected `dramatick operas' or `semi-operas' are here edited in entirety, alongside Purcell's famous all-sung work, Dido and Aeneas, in both its 1689 form and its 1700 adaptation as a series of masques in Shakespeare's Measure for Measure. Each opera has a short introduction explaining the circumstances of the composition of the work and the sources of the opera text.
