Opera books for everyone

The breakthrough must-read

This extraordinary book from UCLA musicologist Evan Baker is not just for coffee tables or classrooms, but is a great read, telling fascinating tales of how opera’s storytelling comes to life, and featuring many never-before published illustrations and diagrams that draw you into the creative process, even centuries ago.  A big hit at last summer’s Santa Fe Opera, this book is essential for the library of any opera performer, producer, buff or theater fan.  (Buy two, so you can give one as a treasured gift.)
