More Description

This richly illustrated retrospective profiles the lively history of the San Francisco Opera. In the fall of 1997, the prestigious company returns to its original, newly renovated performance space, the War Memorial Opera House, and at the same time celebrates its seventy-fifth season. A spectacular chronicle of glamour, glory, and years of hard work, this book rediscovers the illustrious directors, the young singers, the brilliant costume and set designers, and, of course, the stars who have made the San Francisco Opera an institution. Many of the world's greatest voices, including Luciano Pavarotti, Leontyne Price, Birgit Nilsson, Renata Tibaldi, Placido Domingo, and Jose Carreras, are pictured in breathtaking photographs, along with spectacular reproductions of stage sets and original costume sketches from the Opera's archives. Including a chronological list of every performance since 1922, this lavish celebration is a must-have for all opera fans and theater lovers.
