Description

Molto Agitato: The Mayhem Behind the Music at the Metropolitan Opera

Johanna Fiedler, daughter of Arthur Fiedler, the long-time conductor of the Boston Pops, weaves together some of the most memorable personal, economic, and artistic struggles of the Met's long and vibrant history. From the opera house's early days as a home to legends like Toscanini, Mahler, and Caruso, to more recent artists like Luciano Pavarotti, Plàcido Domingo, and Kathleen Battle, she takes readers behind the gold curtain to reveal electrifying performers, and unforgettable personalities.
 

 “A great pleasure to read. Simultaneously thoughtful, well-written and trashy . . . an ideal beach read for opera buffs.” —Time Out New York

“Opera buffs looking for a chatty, informative and basically fair take on the Met will enjoy the book.” —The New York Times Book Review
