For more than 65 years, the live Metropolitan Opera Broadcasts brought the productions of one of the world's great opera companies to a worldwide audience. Paul Jackson's "Saturday Afternoons at the Old Met" described the broadcasts of the first 20 seasons. This volume chronicles the broadcasts from the coming of the iron-willed Rudolf Bing in 1950 to the final broadcast from the old house on Broadway in 1966, after which the Met moved uptown to Lincoln Center and the start of a new era. As well as his accounts of each broadcast, Jackson delves behind the scenes to discuss the Met's strengths and weaknesses, to present highlights of the broadcast intermission features, and to share his many insights into the magic of grand opera.
