Description

A fascinating, anecdote-filled behind-the-scenes look at more than forty years of the highlights, successes, and day-to-day inner workings - from the productions to the divas to the backstage dramas - of New York's Metropolitan Opera House, by Joseph Volpe, who rose from apprentice carpenter to general manager.

Paperback, 320 pages

 “Engaging . . . delightful . . . A classic American success story.”  —The New York Times

“This engaging volume will delight readers for whom opera is not only an art but also an endless fount of good gossip. . . . A rarity–one of those much-ballyhooed ‘insider books’ that actually delivers the goods.” —The Washington Post Book World
