Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Opera A to Z: A Beginner’s Guide to Opera is an overview of the most famous operas and opera characters of all time; one for each letter of the alphabet. The book was written with children ages eight to twelve in mind, but it is sure to delight young and old alike with its engaging summaries of twenty-six renowned operas. The book is based on a 27 x 40 watercolor that took author and illustrator Liddy Lindsay two years to complete and has become a bestseller as notecards and Giclée prints at The Met Opera Shop in New York.

About the Author

Liddy Lindsay has a BFA in painting from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia and subsequently studied painting for six years in Perugia, Italy. She has taught decorative painting at Moore College of Art and Design and the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion Victorian House Museum in Philadelphia. Her murals can be seen at Winterthur Museum in Delaware and the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. Ms. Lindsay's inspiration for this book was her original "OperA-Z" watercolor painting, which has become a bestseller as notecards and Gicl�e prints at The Met Opera Shop in New York.
