“Unique and compelling portraits of the greatest stars from the world of opera. A deft combination of text and photographs, this exciting book evokes the drama and passion that is the grand opera. It's all here: personal and professional tensions, quirks, habits, explosions, and the agonies and the ecstasies of the great singers and conductors of our time. 50 duotone illustrations. James Radiches manages to capture the souls of these legendary performers through his lens. His accompanying captions augment his work and offset the relatively dry text provided by Chapin. I'm a fan of the opera, but I'm a fan of great photography more. This book offers such intense photographs. You'll feel as if you can see into the artists soul. James Radiches is a genius. “
