Reviews ' The Baroque Libretto reflects the legendary, long-standing collaboration between Domenico Pietropaolo, a world authority on the history of the Italian libretto, and Introduction Mary Ann Parker. Not only does it provide analyses of the literary, musical, and dramatic aspects of the Fisher collection's librettos, but it also sets them in their philosophical, historical, and economic contexts. The Baroque Libretto provides a solid foundation for understanding much about the operatic genre of this period.
