The Knowledge: Opera, Hardback Book

The Knowledge: Opera Hardback



Opera is all about intense emotion, magical music and overwhelming theatrical spectacle.

In this exciting new guide, the many myths that surround opera are exploded, while its transformation from inaccessible high art to affordable, dramatically realistic and easy-to-encounter drama is revealed. The powerful principal players in the opera world - the maestros, superstar divas and directors - are examined in fascinating detail, and questions are asked of opera's future in a world where such extravagant entertainment can seem at odds with the rest of today's popular culture.

Whether you are completely new to the genre or a regular opera-goer wanting to learn more, Opera makes for essential reading.
