Collected Works and The Santa Fe Opera Guild have teamed up this year to present Vivace, a new book group devoted to readings about the world of opera. Vivace is open to the public as well as members of The Santa Opera Guild. Participation is complimentary for Guild members; non-members are asked to pay $5 per session.
Living Opera, selected as one of the Best Music Books of 2010 by The Independent, is a wonderful collection of 20 wide-ranging interviews with the preeminent opera singers, conductors, and directors working on and behind the stage today.
