Pressestimmen

"For many people, the lavish illustrations that accompany this account of the Canadian Opera Company will come as a surprise. There have been few books that deal exclusively with Canadian artistic matters that also have such visual splendour. Can Canadians finally be getting over their sense of cultural inferiority? This book would appear to signal the affirmative." -- CAML Review "Opera Viva has the good looks of a coffee table book and the solid yet lively contents of a good history book." -- Globe and Mail Jan 2001 "Shabas and Morey sweep us briskly through the COC's impressive history, showing how, from rather na and limited beginnings, the company developed into the sophisticated and viable artistic presence it is today." -- National Post Jan 2001 "Ezra Schabas and Carl Morey have served the record splendidly in Opera Viva, a history of the first half-century of the Canadian Opera Company. It has a drama and color that well reflect its subject." -- Opera Canada Dec 2000 "a coffee-table style book, with gorgeously reproduced photosIt tells a concise and engaging story that will appeal to all opera lovers." -- Opus -- Dec 2000
