Resumen:   The article by Lucile Desblache first surveys the translation of opera libretti throughout the history of the genre, concentrating on how attitudes to languages and to audiences have had an impact on different ways of providing translated versions of the operatic text. The author's detailed analysis of language use and translation in libretti as well as the careful examination of opera audiences and their (variable) preferences, provide a firm basis for the analysis of subsequent evolutions and conflicts following the introduction of surtitling. Ample attention is also devoted to the 'invisible' and sometimes thankless task of the surtitler, often "at the centre of a controversy which denigrates translation work and the importance of translation". Still, surtitlers are very conscious of the need to render the text comprehensible for the audience, but to remain in harmony with the production, says Desblache. What is more, the negative reactions of some opera critics discussed in this article, are shown not to be shared by all. The author therefore concludes: "The rekindled interest in opera, noticeable at the turn of the last century, may be reflecting European nostalgia for visions of a culture that has gone by. But it also mirrors other priorities firmly linked to our present and happens in response to successful efforts made by opera houses and festivals to be culturally and financially more accessible to a wider public."
