Shakespeare's plays in music, sports in music, a list of operatic suicides, Faust in music, historical personages in music, musical marriages, a look at Metropolitan Opera ticket prices from the Met's first year until nowthese are just some of the more than 100 lists that make up this most fascinating collection of facts, trivia, and musical minutiae compiled by well-known author, critic, and journalist Kupferberg. But there is also an immense store of handy information here, much that would be difficult, if not impossible to find elsewhere. The list ``Earning a Living in Opera'' would have saved this librarian much frustration in coping with a reader's question only last week. Well-written, well-researched, and well-organized, this book deserves a spot in any music collection. William Shank, CUNY Grad. School Library
