A beautiful book, gorgeously bound, with lovely artwork. The plotlines of many of the great operas are retold in 'story' form, making this book very suitable for readers of 10 year old reading level and up, and younger listeners who have reached the 'chapter' stage.

As well as the storylines, each opera has an introduction explaining its place in the Opera canon, and there are textboxes throughout that give interesting insights.

A book for any Opera lover - long-term, beginner or potential! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811827747, Hardcover)

As the lights dim and the curtain rises, At the Opera transports us with the passion and high drama of our best-loved and most frequently performed operas. Elegantly bound in rich red silk, it presents the stories of over 30 renowned works, accompanied by lush illustrations by artist Peter Malone that glow with theatrical charm. From Mozart's sunny Figaro to Puccini's moon goddess Turandot, the plots and counterplots that drive the great operas are told with grace and zest in a volume as opulent as its subject. Each telling is packed with delicious details and wry humor, complemented with gossip and theatre lore. A must-have for opera fans and a delightful introduction for those attending their first performance, At the Opera is a front-row seat for the best of music and drama.
