Description
The last book written by longtime New Yorker staff writer William Murray (also the author of Janet, My Mother, and Me), this is his tribute to opera and also to his own road not taken. Weaving recollections of his abandoned opera training in New York, Rome, and Milan in the 1950s with the personal and artistic struggles of young opera singers today, Murray follows 12 young singers in the Lyric Opera of Chicago's prestigious training program, the Opera Center for American Artists, through the 20032004 season. He affectionately lays bare the staggering ambition and relentless will required to achieve a career in the arts.
