KIRKUS REVIEW

The men known to the huge radio opera listening audience has taken 72 operas (German, French, Italian, Russian, English), covered plot, dialogue, details of production, and arranged the material so as to be easily used as a reference tool. The bulk of the text deals with the opera stories; three brief chapters on history of opera and of ballet, and on how to listen, what to look for, follow; there's a bibliography and index. Cross is the official commentator for the Metropolitan.
