"This welcome reissue is a prime document of twentieth-century opera production. This is essential reading for anyone concerned with the modern history of opera as drama."
"Stanislavski on Opera is the single most important and timely book I know of on the subject. Important, for its sense of opera as an essentially truthful expression of the human condition; timely, because its pages reassert these values in the face of the symbolic wasteland now passing for the experience of opera on our international stages. This is a classic.""
