Verdi's Shakespeare free pdf "Riveting . . . a double-barreled salvo that hits two bull's-eyes." --"The New York Times Book Review"This dazzling study of the three operas that Giuseppe Verdi adapted from Shakespeare's plays takes readers on a wonderfully engaging journey through opera, music, literature, history, and the nature of genius. "Verdi's Shakespeare" explores the writing and staging of "Macbetto" ("Macbeth"), "Otello" ("Othello"), and "Falstaff," operas by Verdi, an Italian composer who could not read a word of English but who adored Shakespeare. Delving into the fast-paced worlds of these men and the hands-on life of the stage that at once challenged them and gave flight to their brilliance, Wills, in his inimitable way, illuminates the birth of artistic creation.
