I approach the Scott operas as a literary historian rather than as a musicologist or music critic. I am less interested in passing judgment on an opera as music and drama than in seeing what the composer and the librettist do to a given novel, story, or poem when they reshape it into an opera. I began preliminary investigation as early as 1959, but because of other commitments could not get to work in earnest until the spring of 1963.
