1.0 out of 5 stars Stinx, November 24, 2008
The shame about this terribly written book is that it will discourage a good writer from writing a good biography of a fascinating man. The sentence by sentence writing is so difficult to understand that it makes one doubt the veracity of anything the writer says. This is the man responsible for a terrible book on B'way Musicals which had something like 3.000 errors in it. If you're interested, then force yourself to get through his clumsy prose. I just feel sad for his editor; what torture it must have been. Avoid-someday someone will write a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Bernstein, July 22, 2008
Much criticized at the time, especially for the libretto, this one full length opera by Leonard Bernstein today seems brilliant and almost prescient in its subject matter. A great cast conducted by the composer makes the most of the gorgeous music A must for anyone who loves modern America Music or Bernstein's great Broadway scores.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lovely to look at, not to hear, December 9, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I must respectfully disagree with the previous reviewers in that I found the singing mostly inept. There have been three other telecasts in Europe with better singers; see if you can track them down. Sound is excellent, production is beautiful, conducting very slack and some of the singing quite painful.
