Otto Nicolai: The Merry Wives Of Windsor (Vocal Score)

Books | Opera

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Otto Nicolai
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Otto Nicolai became one of the few "one-hit wonders" among classical composers. Although some of his operas had success during his lifetime, it is really only his final opera, The Merry Wives of Windsor, that has become a repertory item, but with its storyline, wit and an abundance of memorable tunes it is not difficult to understand why. It was a rousing success from its first performance on March 9, 1849, and the bubbly overture is still especially popular.

The drama takes place in three acts, to a libretto by Hermann von Mosenthal, the English version being by Josef Blatt.

      I was not specifically informed that the score didn't include the original German text. Now I have to buy it again; that's quite irritating.
