KIRKUS REVIEW

Important reference book as it is a complete history of the Metropolitan Opera, from the inauguration of the plan, to the present drive for a subsidized opera. Serious history -- year by year -- highspotting important events, changes in policy and management, new singers, innovations. Not a personality document -- though full of brief anecdotes and interesting sidelights on people.
