Thought it's not a recent work, I'm finding this book very handy because it lists performers and general music terms as well as information on the operas themselves. Last night I went between La Traviata and Il Trovatore (I can never keep them straight) to looking up the different types of voices to Toscanini (right below Tosca) to La Scala.
