This is another of Russell's handsomely illustrated re-tellings of the stories of great operas; this one includes adaptations of Pelleas & Melisande, Salome, Ein Heldentraum, and Cavalleria Rusticana. Since I wasn't familiar with any of the stories except for Salome, I got to discover them here, in addition to enjoying the lavish illustrations.

This book has not been rated.

Released 4 yrs ago (6/20/2010 UTC) at Main Street (see release notes for details) in Nashua, New Hampshire USA

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I stopped by the Farmers Market on the Main Street bridge at about 1:30 today [got some lovely kohlrabi and some garlic scapes], and decided to leave this book nearby, propped up at the base of the new woven-moose sculpture from this year's sculpture symposium (see photo). I figured the operatic and graphic arts could spend a little time with the sculptural ones! Hope the finder enjoys the book...

I picked up this book after performing music for the Farmers' Market on Main Street, Nashua, NH on a Sunday afternoon about 2:15. Considering myself a "mature" 55 yr. old woman, graphic novels are not a part of my reading list, but the notion of a traveling book spoke to me and yelled "pick me up!" I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful work of P. Craig Russell's hand and his operatic adaptations and released the book during a recent trip to Las Vegas, Nevada.
