From her perspective as a press representative for the Metropolitan Opera, the author recalls various dust-ups which have occurred at the place since the very beginning. She seems to like Joseph Volpe, the predecessor of the current Met head, very much. She also reports information which tarnishes the bright reputations of such luminaries as James Levine and Placido Domingo.
Dated, and not quite as much fun to read as 5,000 Nights at the Opera, for example. Okay to read for those who don't mind the datedness of the material.
