English National Opera Guides are ideal companions to the opera. They provide stimulating introductory articles together with the complete text of the opera in English & Italian. In this Guide, Julian Budden reviews the difficulties that faced the management that had commissioned La Traviata & how, in some previously unpublished letters, Verdi fought their views on casting the leading lady. Denis Arnold contributes a musical commentary. April FitzLyon discusses the social background of the "Lady of the Camellias" in fact, fiction & on the stage, and Nicholas John compares the libretto with the play to show how skilfully it was adapted to for the operatic stage. Overture Publishing, 1981 reprinted 2011: paperback
