Your RML was recently the recipient of a great new collection, a series of 20 of the Opera Guides published in association with the English National Opera and the Royal Opera. Guides to Tosca, Wozzeck, and Carmen, among others, are gold mines for information. A brief glance at the Table of Contents for the Boheme guide shows the following sections:
- A series of essays about casts and synopsis commentary
- Thematic guide
These little treasure chests of information will live in the ML50s.
