Format: Books | History
This fabulous book tells the story of how Margaret Atwood's novel, The Handmaid's Tale, was adapted for, and became an Opera. Paul Bentley, who also wrote the opera's Libretto, has written a wonderful, absorbing and insightful book. From the first phone call to the premiere party, and all the creative processes in between, Bentley explores the procedures and methods of setting a novel to Operatic music, as well as anecdotal references and examples. It is not limited merely to Opera buffs, but is delightfully witty and easy-going so suitable for any theatre or music lover.
