Here’s what it says on the cover:

Operas are known by their composers, famous arias they contain, and well loved singers who’ve starred in them. Librettists are for the most part ignored, because audiences, concentrating on voices and, if moderately sophisticated, the action, hardly wonder whose ideas underlie what they see and hear. But they are there, the Da Pontes and Boitos who gave The Marriage of Figaro to Mozart and Falstaff to Verdi. The famous situations of Europe’s operatic tradition had to be created before music could be found for them. This collection of eighteen librettos sets out to create a new and different tradition, suitable for a populist, indeed revisionist age, able to see the great tradition in an altered way, and then to turn it into something else. Love in the Age of Wings, which gives the collection its title, was written first, and after that came all the others …
