|About the Book|
Opera is one of the most beautiful artistic expressions of all time. The combination of theatre, music and dance has delighted audiences since its emergence, around 1575, until today. O Livro de Ouro da Ópera (The Gold Book of the opera) was written by Milton Cross and reveals the atmosphere of enchantment of the greatest lyrical works. The author was responsible for the transmission of lyrical radio shows in New Yorks Metropolitan and presented the summaries prepared for these radio programs. These are comments on the best known arias and historical and musical information that will enrich the ones already initiated in the matter and will serve as a guide for beginners in the world of opera.
