    This work has a double object. Every great opera has a two-fold character; the two component parts are supreme music and supreme romance. The aim of this work is to tell the stories accompanied by a descriptive analysis of the music. The point of view assumed is that of the ordinary music lover who, though an ardent follower of opera, has neither time, nor opportunity, nor aptitude, to study.
