Music professor and critic Paul Jackson's last two books on the Metropolitan Opera were published to much acclaim, and here he expands his survey by examining the period from 1966-76 when the opera house moved from its old locale to modern housing at Lincoln Center. Any involved in opera on more than a casual level, and with Met history in particular, will relish this in-depth survey of this transitional period along with analysis of performances and legendary opera stars. A hundred photos of performers and performances lends excitement and depth to a survey any college-level collection strong in opera history will want.
