The Barefoot Book of Stories from the Opera by Shahrukh Husain, Shackle Shahrukh Husain, James Mayhew, James Mayhew

Opera is one of the most spectacular and exhilarating art forms in the world, but it is often perceived as being difficult for children to understand. This sumptuous anthology tells a different story. Author Shahrukh Husain has selected seven classic operas, retelling them in a way that will capture them for the unforgettable experience of seeing opera performed live. Each story opens with background information on the composer and a scene-setting introduction, while endnotes offer advice for parents on the best recordings. The book is lavishly illustrated throughout by James Mayhew, whose life-long love and knowledge of his subject brings a truly theatrical sparkle to the page.
