Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A fascinating collection of ten different essays by authors who are experts in their respective fields. Topics covered include conducting, singing, staging, orchestral playing, Bayreuth, and Wagner cults. A must-have for anyone who enjoys Wagner's operas. The essays are rich in content, and one wishes that there where more of them. It is a rather slender, 214 page volume.
