Book Description
What performing art has caused a king to lose his throne, provoked riots in New York City`s Astor Place, and given birth to a cst of characters - in and out of costume - as memorable as any in literature? Opera, naturally. As any enthusiast will profess, the world of opera is second only to nature in power, beauty, and unpredictability. The Little Book of Opera is a collection of writings by some of these very enthusiats, who include writers such as George Bernard Shaw and a workday reporter and opera reviewer named Walt Whitman. The Little Book of Opera celebrates the sublime marriage of words and music that has dazzled audiences with an unparalled parade of both high and low drama since the sixteenth century. This volume collects enchanting and engaging pieces by celebrated writers, including Willa Cather`s striking tale of a stuffy businessman`s infatuation with a prima donna, Richard Wagner`s memorable tirade on the subject of conducing.
