Chris Millington | 161 comments I've been editing an opera guide for Verdi's Rigoletto.

I notice that the opera guides have been included with the actual work.

Should opera guides - they will include the libretto but also articles on the composer, the creation of the work, performances and recordings - be separated from the actual work, with a Librarian's note?

The listings could do with some work and when I get a bit of time, I might have a go. If so, I may be back with more questions!

If they include the original work, as well as discussions about it, then they sound similar to annotated editions. And we combine annotated editions together with the original work.
