It’s an interesting historical fact that Renata Tebaldi, one of the great spinto sopranos of our time, began and ended her Metropolitan Opera career with the same role. Rudolf Bing introduced her to the New York public in 1955 as an unforgettable Desdemona opposite Mario del Monaco; her last performance, again Desdemona, was under my management on January 8, 1973, this time with James McCracken as her Otello.

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. Wondering what else he's done.

Very interesting book.

He 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 had to purchase two copies so that I could matt and frame Pavarotti and Domingo's portraits.
