This fascinating book brings together for the first time everything you never knew about the world of opera. Fun, engaging and entertaining, it is a collection of facts, figures and miscellany which captures the sublimity and silliness of opera. From opera etiquette to the role of goats in opera, bible characters to favorite foods of the leading sopranos, no opera fan (whether serious or armchair) anywhere will fail to be educated and entertained. The book includes a foreword by Lesley Garrett, one of opera's favorite sopranos.
