This is a stunningly unique tribute to a golden era of The Metropolitan Opera. In this oversized volume, Nancy Ellison captures stunning opera performances by such legends as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, and Renee Fleming onstage. Beginning with Pavarotti's emotional farewell performance in "Tosca", "In Grand Style" is filled with profound images from the Met's greatest operas, including Julie Taymor's new "Die Zauberflote" and Franco Zeffirelli's "Carmen and Turandot". For more than 130 years, The Met has awed fans with its grandeur. Now, with general manager Joseph Volpe's tenure coming to an end, Pavarotti's retirement, and Domingo's distinguished career nearing its culmination, this magnificent book is a timely tribute. Ellison's photographs exemplify why The Met is considered the Mecca for not just opera singers but fans as well.
