A great selection - so good I bought two copies, one for me and one for my singing teacher to keep.

This is a great repertoire book, however mistitled in my opinion. Because of the limited repertoire of the colloratura soprano I was excited to see a book published in honour of the works. However once received I realised that many of the works were equally for dramatic and lyric colloratura ie: vengence aria -Magic Flute, Mad scene from Lucia di lamermoore etc. In that same way some of the very main stream colloratura arias were missing ir: les oiseaux dans la charmille and many more. Overall the anthology was a great purchase. However for those of you searching out particular pieces you should perhaps invest in a full score of the opera before purchasing many of these anthologies to complete your library.
