A new, concise edition of the much-acclaimed New Penguin Opera Guide.
Amanda Holden has written some 50 translations and texts for the opera stage, theatre, and concert hall, including the libretto for Mark Anthony Turnage's opera 'The Silver Tassie', for which she received an Olivier Award. For The New Penguin Opera Guide she assembled a team of 100 experts. She lives in London.
Praise for The New Penguin Opera Guide: 'For range, breadth, enthusiasm and common sense, Amanda Holden's labour of love is already irreplaceable' Dennis Marks, Observer
