Description

Great Operatic Disasters (Paperback)
Written by Hugh Vickers
Introduction by Peter Ustinov

Opera is one of the most accident-prone of the arts, and when things go wrong, they tend to do so on a grand scale. Great Operatic Disasters records some of the most memorable calamities from opera houses around the world, caused by everything from stage management misfortunes and computer problems, to the unpredictable presence of animals on stage.

As Peter Ustinov wrote in his introduction to Great Operatic Disasters: "There is no art form which attempts the sublime while defying the ridiculous with quite the foolhardiness of opera."
