Manuel Carlos De Brito. A detailed documentary history of opera in Portugal from the beginning of the eighteenth century to the inauguration of the still existing Teatro de S. Carlos in 1793. This 1989 study shows how the introduction of opera into the country at the beginning of the century was connected with the recruitment of Italian singers and players during the reign of Joao V, even though the court's interest in opera was small and the activity of public opera houses was hampered by the church and the King himself.

Stein and José Máximo Leza-are clearly intended to provide a quasi-encyclopedic overview of their subjects. In contrast to these essays, Alessandra Campana's chapter "To look again (at Don Giovanni)" focuses on a few musical numbers from a single opera. Dolan’s book is of a piece with studies published in the past few decades that have challenged dominant discourses of Haydn’s music as intellectual art, as Hanslick’s abstract tonally moving forms.
