How to use Boito in a sentence
Otello, a lyric drama in four acts, with a book by Arrigo Boito, proved the second of the composer's matured period works.
Boito's libretto is, perhaps, the best written and planned book ever presented to a composer.
M. Boito is equally celebrated in his own country as musician and as poet.
This, one of the few passages in the libretto not immediately derived from Shakespeare, is a triumph on Boito's part.
