About this Item

This is the first complete biography (584 pages) devoted to the great nineteenth century Italian soprano Giuditta Pasta. Creator of monumental roles such as Bellini's Norma, Amina (La sonnambula), Beatrice di Tenda, and Donizetti's Anna Bolena, Pasta was preeminent as Mayr's Medea, and Rossini's Tancredi, Desdemona and Semiramide. Pasta proved influential in inspiring major composers, and was equally lauded for her histrionic as well as vocal abilities. This biography corrects all the falsehoods relating to this singer and contains a vast quantity of previously unpublished material. There are numerous musical examples and extensive iconography. Appendices reveal her exact repertoire and number of performances. I am the author of this work, and would be pleased, on request, to inscribe the book to buyers.
