If only they could take them all home… The book includes extracts from The Swan, Aquarium, Fossils, and Finale (From Disney’s Fantasia) along with a totally new story to link the pieces together. As you and your little one journey through the magical scenes, you will press the buttons to hear 10 excerpts from the suite’s music.

Author: by Denis Sir Forman
Published at: Modern Library; Revised, Subsequent edition (September 1, 1998)
ISBN: 978-0375751769

View on Amazon

Delightful and anti-reverentialSunday Times (London)With an encyclopedic knowledge of opera and a delightful dash of irreverence, Sir Denis Forman throws open the world of operaits structure, composers, conductors, and artistsin this hugely informative guide. A Night at the Opera dissects the eighty-three most popular operas recorded on compact disc, from Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur to Mozart’s Die Zauberflte.

For each opera, Sir Denis details the plot and cast of characters, awarding stars to parts that are worth looking out for, really good, or, occasionally, stunning. He goes on to tell the history of each opera and its early reception.

Finally, each work is graded from alpha to gamma (although the Ring cycle gets an X), and Sir Denis has no qualms about voicing his opinion: the first act of Fidelio is a bit of a mess, while the last scene of Don Giovanni towers above the comic finales of Figaro and Cos and whether or not [it] is Mozart’s greatest opera, it is certainly his most powerful finale.
