(Vocal Collection). An excellent volume of coloratura arias has been added to the G. Schirmer Opera Anthology series. With 30 arias in English, Italian, German, French and Russian, this is the largest collection of coloratura operatic excerpts ever published. Because of the nature of the material, tradition-based performance suggestions are liberally found throughout the volume. For instance, you will find standard vocal variations for the "Doll Song" from The Tales of Hoffmann included in the edition, along with the original vocal line. Like the other volumes in the ground-breaking series, there are historical and plot notes about each aria, new engravings, and new translations for study.

Excellent soprano coloratura book

I absolutely love this book. It gives me the challenge I want. If you have a very high range and want to use it, you will be pleased with this book. It has a great variety of composers and languages.
Good book to have for practice pieces

I bought this at the recommendation of my daughter’s voice teacher. Good selection of songs for her range. Good to have for practice, etc.

These anthologies are just beyond wonderful. They have a brilliant selection of songs and the piano part is easy to follow if you wish to play and sing at the same time. The translations in the front of the book are clear, and while not underneath the other text in the actual songs, is easily written in if so desired.

This is a great vocal book for high coloratura singers. I would hesitate to give most of these songs to students under 18 years of age, unless many years of high singing have been in their background. Overall, fabulous book, and great selections.
I can’t help but love this book

As a vocal performance student who loves to sing coloratura, I can’t help but love this book! I’ve already used a song from this book for an audition and I can’t wait to learn more! Every coloratura soprano needs this book 🙂

Every Coloratura should have this book. Even if you’re not a Coloratura, it’s still helpful for other Sopranos with options to sing lower in the decorative sections. Overall I highly recommend!

Perfect for my favorite soprano!
G. Schirmer Opera Anthology

Excellent product, exactly as advertised and in perfect condition. Schirmer series are well-known and top quality, so the provenance of this item was not in question. The style and condition of the book itself are as expected, and it arrived quite speedily — several days sooner than promised. I was pleased with the transaction from start to finish.
