5.0 von 5 Sternen A highly entertaining and non-threatening intro to opera., 22. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I enjoyed "Who's Afraid of Opera?" very much, and have recommended it to several people.
I'm an opera "newbie" who is interested in opera but didn't know where to start. I had not been tempted to read other books about opera that for the most part seemed dry and impenetrable. Michael Walsh's book, on the other hand, was more like having an extended and animated conversation about opera over dinner or while walking along with a friend. In fact, until I had finished the book, I treated it as such, taking it with me everywhere, like a companion, and was eager to read it when I had a spare moment.
Michael Walsh is indeed opinionated, but that is part of why I was so stimulated by this book. It made me want to go out and see/listen to the same operas he discusses--to determine if I agreed with his opinions! Whether I agreed with him or not, I was consistently entertained by this book and would recommend it to anyone as a good "starter" book to the world of opera! In "Who's Afraid of Opera" Michael Walsh will both irritate and delight you, as anyone worth talking to should.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outspoken guide to opera as living art about real people, 6. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book, along with Fred Plotkin's "Opera 101", was one of the very first that I read when I was just beginning to learn about and enjoy opera. A Time Magazine music critic, Mr. Walsh has written a book that is indeed highly "opinionated", but the author is very enthusiastic about opera as a meaningful and valuable past and present, living, art form. Interesting and enjoyable personal anecdotes and information on a number of recent works by such composers os Adams and Glass, as well as an emphasis on operas that explore everyday human values and ideas make the book rather unique among opera guides for beginners that I've seen. Highly recommended, especially for readers who are interested in music but not yet sure whether or not opera is for them.
