    Default English Libretto Translations

    Can anyone point me to a good place to find English translations of libretti? These can be either free online or somewhere i can order them, but not too expensive. The ones I am most interested in are any romantic onwards French operas as well as Strauss operas.

    Try and ask fellow member Simon Templar, he's one of the experts on French opera.

    Unfortunately this site does not have too many French operas, but it's got side-by-side translations of many warhorses.
