While the musical tradition of the British Isles within the 'long 19th century' has been reclaimed from obscurity by means of musicologists within the final thirty years, appraisal of operatic tradition within the latter a part of this era has remained mostly elusive. Paul Rodmell argues that there have been way more possibilities for composers, performers and audiences than one may count on, an statement proven by way of the truth that over 100 severe operas by means of British composers have been premiered among 1875 and 1918.

Rodmell examines the character of operatic tradition within the British Isles in this interval, the way opera was once produced and 'consumed' by way of businesses and audiences, the repertory played, social attitudes to opera, the dominance of London's West finish and the actions of traveling businesses within the provinces, and the placement of British composers inside this realm of job. In doing so, he uncovers the undoubted demanding situations confronted via opera in Britain during this interval, and delves extra into why it was once specifically tricky to make a step forward during this specific style whilst different fields of compositional endeavour have been having fun with a interval of sustained growth.

Whilst contemporaneous composers and commentators and later advocates of British song could have felt that the country's operatic lifestyles didn't degree as much as their aspirations or targets, there has been nonetheless loads of job and, no matter if this used to be no longer unavoidably that which used to be regularly wanted, it had an important and lasting impression on musical tradition in Britain.
