    Although this isn't 100% opera it is a good biography of the greatest 20th century opera composer, no sorry the greatest 20th century composer, IMHO. Its not overly long but is a good insight.

    Have just come across mention of this, it's aimed at singers so not sure how interesting it would be for a fan.

    Hehe, I got this one too, and Natalie will remember why... It was before your time at TC, Schigolch; we got a crazy Italian voice professor who recommended this book, but then proceeded to utter a string of colorful words at anybody who would disagree with anything said by the author... We got to learn a list of insults in Italian, and he got himself banned, LOL. It was Gaston's first day as moderator...

    The book is good.

    Then, crazy people can really be anywhere.

    Oh yes, the book is really good, I enjoyed it. It's just because it made me remember the whole episode, which was actually kind of funny. The guy was really crazy...
