From the Publisher:

"Riveting . . . a double-barreled salvo that hits two bull's-eyes." --"The New York Times Book Review"This dazzling study of the three operas that Giuseppe Verdi adapted from Shakespeare's plays takes readers on a wonderfully engaging journey through opera, music, literature, history, and the nature of genius. "Verdi's Shakespeare" explores the writing and staging of "Macbetto" ("Macbeth"), "Otello" ("Othello"), and "Falstaff," operas by Verdi, an Italian composer who could not read a word of English but who adored Shakespeare. Delving into the fast-paced worlds of these men and the hands-on life of the stage that at once challenged them and gave flight to their brilliance, Wills, in his inimitable way, illuminates the birth of artistic creation.

[His] detailed depictions of the operas' subtleties, sublimely rendered for opera fans, endlessly elucidate the work of these 'creative volcanoes.'" - Publishers Weekly "Wills brilliantly explores the evolution, development, and performance histories of the three plays (actually, four, counting both Henry IV and Merry Wives of Windsor as inspirations for Falstaff), the three operas, and the connections among them. As essential purchase. " - Library Journal , starred review "Wills's insights into both Verdi's acute understanding of Shakespeare and his ingenious methods of conveying it are thrilling-particularly his account of how, when composing "Otello," Verdi encapsulated the six hundred and eighty-six lines of the play's first act within a few minutes of music." - The New Yorker "Fascinating." - Commonweal Magazine "One genius interprets another: English to Italian, words to lyrics, immortal drama to overpowering opera. . . . While the book has an enormous amount to teach devotees of either Shakespeare or Verdi, opera fans in particular will enjoy the author's close and illuminating attention to backstage history, as well as words, music and phrasing." - Kirkus "A labor of love." - HistoryWire.com "Despite the novelty of the subject in VERDI''S SHAKESPEARE, Wills's writing is characteristically clear and marked with literate ping. . . . Throughout, he demonstrates an innate understanding of drama and music and how they can work together. His analysis of melody, harmony and orchestration are as solid as his examination of theatrical practice and technique. And his research is thorough. He draws on the considerable store of data unearthed by others, citing in his more than one hundred footnotes a veritable Who's Who of opera and theater scholars." - The Washington Independent Review of Books.
