5 Porter, Andrew Bravi: Lyric Opera of Chicago
1558597719 / 9781558597716; This is a book for people who love the opera. It celebrates one of the great companies in the world - Lyric Opera of Chicago - truly a special place where artists love to come to sing and where, night after night, audiences fill the house to overflowing. During the past 15 years, under the leadership of general director Ardis Krainik, and with artistic director Bruno Bartoletti, Lyric has given the world many truly extraordinary productions. To commemorate the Lyric's 40th anniversary, the great photographer Victor Skrebneski has photographed eleven outstanding international singers. He has honored some of the Lyric's most important conductors, designs and directors and has chosen, and personally printed, a magnificent collection of production photographs taken since 1981. When you look at these beautiful pictures, I believe you can still hear the music. I invite you to enjoy and to savor what I believe to be one of the most beautiful books about opera ever created. / From Placido Domingo. Unpaginated, approximately 140 pages on heavy paper. Gift inscription on the second endpaper. The pictorial cover of the book is without the lettering on the jacket. Price clipped. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

The Faber Book of Opera, Sutcliffe, Tom (editor)
6 Sutcliffe, Tom (editor) The Faber Book of Opera
0571195954 / 9780571195954; Opera has been a quarry for theorists ever since it began, and many of the theories were developed by the best talents involved - geniuses whose words add enormously to our appreciation of the art form. Also, opera in theory and practice has been discussed and digested by critics as well as singers, directors and impresarios, recalling their professional lives - from Michael Kelly, who claimed to be Mozart's favorite comic tenor, on. Eduard Hanslick, Leigh Hunt, Debussy, Thomas Love Peacock, and Virgil Thomson all did their stints, long and short, as reporters on achievement in the world of opera. Some of this material is unavailable in English elsewhere. This book covers the written record of opera in theory, in practice, in review and in fiction: An anthology of literary gems put together with substantial considered writing, drawn from the prime sources. 402 pages, including an index. The jacket has very light shelf wear. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
