By Victor Talking Machine Co., Introduction by Matthew Brewer
The Victor Book of Opera carries on the proud tradition of operatic synopsis compendiums with a rich array of historic photos and recording references. With its intricate descriptions of opera synopses spanning the length and breadth of the repertoire, The Victor Book of the Opera is a valuable reference for both operatic cognoscenti, and those just beginning to explore this historic art form.
Matthew Brewer studied music and operatic performance at Oberlin Conservatory. He currently lives in Washington, DC, where he is an MA candidate at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.
