Snowman, Daniel:  Placido Domingo's tales from the opera
Book Number: 28918
London BBC Books 1994 8vo hardcover 186pp index, colour illus. very good / very good d/w. Behind the scenes with Placido Domingo, the reader discovers the blood, sweat and tears which go into the staging of an opera. Productions at four of the world's great opera houses are featured: Wagner's "Die Walkure" at the Vienna State Opera; Giordano's "Fedora" at La Scala in Milan; Puccini's "La Boheme" at the Los Angeles Opera; and Verdi's "Stiffelio" at the New York Metropolitan. We follow Domingo from the initial auditions through the sheer hard work of rehearsal and the hours spent alone at the piano, to costume fittings and the final triumphant performance, with ecstatic plaudits from audience and critics alike. Into this framework Snowman has woven a portrait of Domingo the man, from his early years in Spain and his operatic debut, to his rapid rise to the position of international superstar. The author also examines many questions about opera. How does Domingo compare with Carreras and Pavarotti? Why does opera cost so much to put on? Is opera merely a museum art? What will Domingo do when he can no longer sing? All this combines to bring the reader a guide to the world of opera today

SynopsisnThe operatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti has attained the kind of superstardom usually only reached by film and pop stars. He is the most celebrated tenor today, his concerts attended by thousands, his records selling millions. This autobiography is a candid portrait of this extraordinary artist, offering clues to his character and to his ability to move millions of people by the power of his voice and personality. It covers the major events of his life, and the operatic venues where he has enjoyed the greatest triumphs - London, Moscow, Peking, and New York. It also tells of the difficult times in his career, most notably in Milan and Chicago, and of his work in Philadelphia helping struggling singers. Finally, it tells of his family and private life, including his daughter's near-fatal illness, and his battles with his own health.
