Meyerbeer On Record, Vol. Overview Track Listing Liner Notes Giacomo Meyerbeer was one of the greatest composers of his time, though his operas have virtually disappeared from the repertory. There are several possible explanations.
With the rise of verismo , there was a move away from the heroic tradition and a decline in the art of bel canto singing required for the proper rendition of his roles. Negative attitudes toward Meyerbeer are an aspect of this negativity toward bel canto in general, which emerged in the third part of the 19th century.
This pro-German movement, focused on Richard Wagner, became entrenched in academic circles, with enduring effects. It has also been less convincingly observed that there are nearly insurmountable obstacles needed to produce a Meyerbeer opera today, and this leaves his works languishing. A non-genre award "to French authors of works most useful to morals, and commendable by a character of moral elevation and utility.
