DESCRIPTION:
Great, Grand & Famous Opera Houses takes its readers on a tour of the world's most beautiful opera venues, from exquisite gems of early theatre design such as the Ope ! Royal in Versailles and the Slottsteater at Drottingholm, Sweden, to extravagant Belle Ooque halls such as the Palais Garnier in Paris and Vienna's Staatsoper, and modern masterpieces including the iconic Sydney Opera House and Valencia's spectacular Palau de les Artes Reina Sofia. Graced by stunning photography, each opera house profile provides an engaging guided tour of the building's architectural features and interior design and goes behind the scenes to reveal colourful stories of the patrons, impresarios and stars whose larger-than-life personalities, tempestuous relationships and outrageous behaviour at times surpassed the melodrama on stage. Chapter introductions trace the broad history of opera in different parts of the world and fascinating feature spreads turn the spotlight on key figures and aspects of production ranging from singers, composers and conductors to stage machinery and costume design. Sumptuous, entertaining and inspiring, Great, Grand and Famous Opera Houses will delight not only opera lovers and connoisseurs of architecture, but all those intrigued by the history of music, art and culture.
