Fabrizio Della Seta

University of Chicago Press

Gabriele Baldini, a distinguished Anglicist, dealt with Verdi's operas as a professional theater critic who understood a great deal about music. This chapter examines Abitare la battaglia, an incomplete posthumous work by Baldini that offers an idea of Verdi's theater and a theory of Verdian dramaturgy. It also poses the question of whether Baldini's analyses have a professional value for today's musicologists.

Keywords:   gabriele baldini, verdi, operas, theater critic, abitare la battaglia, verdian dramaturgy, musicologists
