Opera for Lovers

Opera for Lovers




'If Opera be the food of love, sing on', Shakespeare didn't quite write, but in Opera for Lovers renowned New Zealand diva, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, does, sharing her own love of opera with us all. In a highly personal and candid view of her world of music, Dame Kiri takes us behind the gold and glitter and draws aside the curtains of the great opera houses of the world to the magic and the mirth---and sometimes the murk---that lie beyond.

Dame Kiri's outspoken and observant approach to the many and often veiled aspects of opera make this book a must for all her fans, music lovers, and opera connoisseurs alike.
