Synopses & Reviews
With more than 40 pages of new material including illustrations and unpublished sketches, this book illuminates Julie Taymor's entire career, from her theatrical apprenticeship to her most recent work for stage and screen.
There is an all-new introductory essay by Italian film critic Antonio Monda, as well as sections on "Frida, Titus," Taymor's upcoming opera "Grendel," and her much-anticipated Beatles film "Across the Universe." This sumptuous book offers a fascinating look inside the creative process of one of the world's great artists.
