In this oversized volume, Nancy Ellison captures stunning opera performances by such legends as Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, and Renée Fleming onstage. Beginning with Pavarotti's emotional farewell performance in Tosca, In Grand Style is filled with profound images from the Met's greatest operas, including Julie Taymor's new Die Zauberflöte and Franco Zeffirelli's Carmen and Turandot. For more than 120 years, The Met has awed fans with its grandeur. Now, with general manager Joseph Volpe's tenure coming to an end, Pavarotti's retirement, and Domingo's distinguished career nearing its culmination, this magnificent book is a timely tribute. Ellison's photographs exemplify why The Met is considered the Mecca for not just opera singers but fans as well.
