In this dazzling work, Pulitzer Prize winner and lifelong opera devotee Garry Wills explores the writing and staging of the three operas that Verdi adapted from Shakespeare: Macbetto (Macbeth), Otello (Othello), and Falstaff. An Italian composer who could not read a word of English but who adored Shakespeare, Verdi devoted himself to operatic productions that incorporated the playwright's texts. Wills delves 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. With fascinating portraits of the artists and their entourages, Verdi's Shakespeare takes readers on a spell binding Journey through opera, music, literature, history, and the nature of genius itself.
