An important and wonderful book!10/11/11| Michael TierraI was deeply moved by the Bonesetter's Daughter opera and at first passed on buying this book as I returned to my seat at intermission. After the last act with all of the creators and cast on the stage and realizing that this was a unique artistic collaboration perhaps unparalleled in the history of music, still filled with the inspirational exuberance i felt from the last act, I scrambled back to the
store an got a copy of Ken Smith's book. If anyone saw and liked this great opera they should read this book. For anyone who hasn't seen the opera, they should make it a priority to see it ASAP with the original direction, caste who and staging, and read this important documentation of this unique and remarkable artistic collaboration.
Now if you happen to buy the book without seeing the opera, I'm sure you will get a lot from the poetic libretto of Amy Tan and will want t see the opera.
