The history of the opera in America may be entirely limited to the 19th Century. There were two major centers for the opera-New York and New Orleans The author has carefully and candidly opened the doors to the behind scenes working of the opera, the composers, conductors and, of course, the famous singers. Written in 1901, the excitement that this enthusiastic opera-lover generates for the reader is wonderful.
