Great Operas: A Guide to Twenty Five of the World's Finest Musical Experiences

Author(s): Michael Steen


From Great Composers author Michael Steen, a unique multi-platform project offering a royal box view into one of mankind's greatest art forms.

From the soaring heights of Wagner's epic Ring cycle to the tear-jerking emotion of Mozart's breathtakingly beautiful Don Giovanni, opera is one of the most powerful artistic forms mankind has ever created. It should also be the most enjoyable! Michael Steen's The Lives and Times of the Great Composers was described as 'hugely informative and deliciously gossipy' by the Spectator. Great Operas is his accessible and entertaining user's manual to making the best of an opera - whether at home or at a live performance, interspersing the key facts with erudite commentary from a man for whom opera is a lifetime's passion.
