A Cadenza for Caruso Reviews
Mystery and egos collide during the premiere of La Fanciulla del West at the Metropolitan Opera in 1910. The cast of characters are all real people of the time: Enrico Caruso, Geraldine Farrar, Pasquale Amato, Emmy Destinn, Arturo Toscanini, impresario Gatti-Cassaza, and Giacomo Puccini himself. Like most cozies, the plot takes a backseat to the characters, but Paul's affectionate handling of the divos & divas is too fun to quibble over.
Rather silly crime novel in which Puccini - in New York for the world premiere of La Fanciulla del West - is accused of murder. The legendary tenor, Caruso, turns sleuth. Moderately entertaining but for lovers of opera and crime only. That's me! But it still doesn't amount to much.
