Abstract:

How does a singer find appropriate operatic music? The answer is both simple and complicated. The simple answer is to find arias and roles that are similar to those that are already comfortable to sing. The complicated answer is to sort through the vast number of composers, operas, roles, and arias, to find the ones that are suitable. The singer needs to be able to go beyond popular operatic anthologies, available recordings, popular artists, and arias assigned by voice teachers. Guide to Operatic Roles and Arias has been compiled to help the singer do just that -- to become an informed singer. - Introduction.

When you want to find arias that hit the sweet spot of your tessitura or voice quality, look no further than the Guide to Operatic Roles and Arias and Guide to Operatic Duets. These two references help you draw from centuries of operatic works, narrowing down your searches not only by highly-differentiated voice categories, language, style, operas, and roles, but even by well-known singers and their repertoire--all cross-referenced for your easy and stimulating explorations. - The Opera Journal.
