 Please do not send routine reference questions to the above address (questions like "Where can I find the libretto of this opera?"). Instead, browse this page (which is just a selection), see the bibliography under "Libretto" in The New Grove Dictionary of Opera, check reference sources at your local library, and look at online library catalogs. And don't overlook booklets that come with recordings, old and new!
