Joined with critical essays, their colorful commentary will be complemented by Levine's own reflections on his work, his intense artistic collaborations, milestones at the Met, and achievements such as building the renowned Met orchestra and expanding the Met repertory. The book is richly illustrated with hundreds of photographs of Met performances, rehearsals, curtain calls, and backstage shots. James Levine: Forty Years at the Metropolitan Opera explores the legendary conductor's profound body of work over four decades of musical leadership, offering an unusual and personal look at one of history's most influential artistic figures at the helm of the world's greatest opera house.

About the Author:

The Metropolitan Opera staff (New York, NY) has put together all of the essays, photos, and illustrations, many of which have never been seen before. They have also designed the book.

Review:

Anyone with even the slightest interest in opera will find this book illuminating, entertaining, and poignant, considering how many of the great singers are no longer with us. --Library Journal

[H]owever long Levine is able to continue conducting, his legacy at the Met and in the history of opera is secure. And this book is a handy reminder of some of the highlights of his unparalleled career. --Associated Press
