Abstract:

The volume focuses on many operas composed in the decade of unification of Italy.0With the establishment of Il Regno d?Italia in 1861 the heydays of Risorgimento opera as a powerful political tool were over. A new category of operas, which is the subject of the present book, was that of the politically oriented operas that replaced the waning category of the Risorgimento operas. Those operas turned public attention to the pitfalls and dangers of forming the new government of the unifying Italy. The new category commenced with Verdi?s "Simon Boccanegra" (1857), "Un Ballo in Maschera" (1859), and "Don Carlos" (1867), in which Verdi indirectly expressed his alarm at the dangers facing the future kings of Italy. A great many operas were composed in the decade of unification of Italy. Chapter 1 suggests a classification of the operas into the categories of operas of intrigue-and-love, the last Risorgimento operas, operas of social criticism, arrangements of literary masterpieces, and religious operas, and then focusing on the new category. The major section of the book comprises case studies of five representative Italian operas of the 1860s.
