The Opera Guide – just updated in a new digital edition – features the world’s 100 most performed composers. With almost 20% of that number still writing today, its editor picks ten living composers who’re new to the guide

The Opera Guide is the first opera reference book compiled solely for publication online. At last reference books can be kept up-to-date, and this concise version of my previous opera guides contains state-of-the-art information on the 100 composers whose operas are most often performed, along with 250 operas that are their best works. Starting with Monteverdi and Cavalli, it ranges all through the repertoire to Peter Maxwell Davies, Kaija Saariaho and Thomas Adès, who have all written new operatic works to be premiered this year. Full story.
