About this product
- DescriptionThis is an intriguing look into one of the most important periods in the illustrious history of New York's Metropolitan Opera. Start-Up at the New Met looks at ten years between 1966 and 1976, which saw the move from its old home in up-town New York, to the Lincoln Centre - one of the most cutting edge and techlogically advanced arts complexes in the world. It also looks at the last six years of Rudolph Bing's tenure as manager, who brought in stars such as Maria Callas, Placido Domingo and Lucia Pavarotti. This fascinating volume looks at all the highs and lows, the backstage turmoil, the front of house controversy and the one hundred and forty performances of this important era in the history of, probably, the world's most revered opera company.
