by Lourenco, Antonio Jose.

Abstract (Summary)
Augusto Machado’s La Borghesina: A Study and Critical Edition The purpose of this study and critical edition of the opera La Borghesina (1909) by Augusto Machado is to make available for performance a fair and clear edition of the score. Machado was first and foremost a man of the theater, and La Borghesina is his last opera. It is a mature work in which the composer demonstrates his mastery not only of melodic language and orchestration, but also of theatrical action and scenic diversion.
