“The ‘gal Friday’ of the Met, Ziegler's secretary, tells the backstage story of the famous opera house with affection and spice. She tells of music and procedures but spends most of her time on people from stage hands to stars, and the stories of them add to the allure of an honest view of the well loved music center.”
