The toughest show on earth : my rise and reign at the Metropolitan Opera by Joseph Volpe( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Japanese and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An anecdote-filled behind-the-scenes look at more than forty years of the highlights, successes, and day-to-day inner workings--productions, divas, and backstage dramas--of New York's Metropolitan Opera House, by Joseph Volpe, the only general manager to have risen through the ranks. This book is the story of Volpe's years leading up to the Met, from his first big job as a stagehand at the Morosco Theater to the odd jobs he picked up moonlighting. It is his Met years--from apprentice carpenter to general manager--that tell about New York and the business of culture. Volpe looks at the Met today, an institution of vast egos and complicated politics, as well as its glittering past. He writes about the general managers he worked under; his own embattled rise to the top; his bad-cop, good-cop collaboration with conductor James Levine; and making a family of highly charged artist-stars and visionary directors.--From publisher description

Stone Roberts : paintings and drawings by Stone Roberts( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of New York-based artist Stone Roberts resemble those of the Old Masters, yet they are unmistakably contemporary. His work - primarily still lifes and figural scenes - has a wealth of narrative complexity, subtlety, and intriguing details. Roberts was trained in painting and drawing in Philadelphia and in Rome, and his works hang in public and private collections throughout America and Europe. His meticulous handling of paint and allusions to themes found throughout the history of art reveal his traditional training, but it is his ability to inject into his realist work a mystery and commentary on modern society that sets Roberts apart from other artists of his generation." "Expanded and updated, with thirty-one additional color illustrations and the new introductory text by Klinkenborg as well as the original essay by Charles Michener, this new edition of Stone Roberts provides an understanding of the artist's sensibility and critical analyses of many of his sublime individual works."--Jacket

The origin of species by Charles Darwin( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. Arguing for a material, not divine, origin of species, he showed that new species are achieved by 'natural selection'. Development, diversification, decay, extinction and absence of plan are all inherent to his theories. Darwin read prodigiously across many fields; he reflected on his experiences as a traveller, he experimented. His profoundly influential concept of 'natural selection' condenses materials from past and present, from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters. The Origin communicates the enthusiasm of original thinking in an open, descriptive style, and Darwin's emphasis on the value of diversity speaks more strongly now than ever
