Through conversational text, informative sidebars, and full-color photographs, young readers will learn about the talented people--composers, singers, musicians, stagehands, set and costume designers, makeup crews--and the technical wizardry that go into staging opera's lavish performances. There are even behind-the-scenes glimpses of many of today's great opera companies, including the Royal Opera House in London, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the San Diego Opera.
