Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the occasion of his retirement from The Metropolitan Opera--where, as general manager since 1990, he was New York's most powerful and outspoken culture czar--Volpe gives an incomparable, behind-the-scenes look at this grandest of grand opera companies.

About the Author

Joseph Volpe was born in Brooklyn. He joined the Metropolitan Opera in 1964 and has been its general manager for sixteen years. He lives in New York City with his wife, the former ballet dancer Jean Anderson Volpe, and their daughter.
