ADVENTURES IN THE SCREAM TRADE Scenes from an Operatic Life

by | Read by Charles Long

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This delightful insider view of the world of opera is much like some of the glimpses we get from rock-and-roll tell-alls. Opera singer Charles Long is a skilled wordsmith, and his narration adds verve and energy to his story. The result is a fun and enlightening listening experience. His elegant foreign accents add authenticity, with his best creation being, of course, himself. Particularly amusing is his colorful and frank description about being a straight guy in a world abounding with gay men. Also, his spirited account of the time he and his boss, an Italian restaurant owner, retreated to a back alley to settle a dispute over a microphone is amusing. Adding to the listening pleasure are gorgeous snippets of opera music. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
