Opera Biographies #13: Leonard Warren: American Baritone Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The great baritone Leonard Warren was history's most notable interpreter of Verdi, making his mark in the title roles of Rigoletto, Macbeth and Simon Boccanegra. Warren's dramatic death over 40 years ago is famous: he collapsed and died onstage at the Met on March 4, 1960 in a performance as Carlo in La forza del destino. In this definitive biography, Mary Jane Phillips-Matz, author of an acclaimed biography of Giuseppe Verdi, offers an intimate portrait of a beloved opera star, based on hundreds of interviews. More than 100 rare photographs capture Warren in his great roles as well as in private moments. HARDCOVER.

Book News Annotation:

This biography of America's great mid-20th century baritone briefly covers his family background, childhood, and youth, but emphasizes his singing career, with some attention paid to his courtship and marriage. Largely compiled with the assistance of Warren's family. Includes a discography, chronology of his opera performances, and abundant b&w photographs.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:
