This review is from: The Good Opera Guide (Kindle Edition)
Very well written, humorous guide which acknowledges and even revels in the ludicrous plots without sneering or in any way negating the powerful emotions that can be evoked by the eternal verities in the stories. Very strong on musicality, highlighting the especially good elements of each opera to watch/listen out for. Kindle implementation is very good - the "Go-to" menu gives you a dropdown listing each opera. Given the price of opera, especially live, anything that can improve the enjoyment by a tiny percentage is an absolute bargain and this certainly augments opera I have seen.
