Molto Agitato: The Mayhem Behind the Music at the Metropolitan Opera
A lively history of an institution often involved in controversy and personality clashes. Includes the early history of the Met, which began when the newly wealthy Mrs. Vanderbilt was turned down for a box at the old Academy of Music, then New York's opera house, and decided, in 1883, to start her own. (2001)
