A spanish edition of "The Oxford Illustrated History of Opera". Nowhere does the rich panoply of opera history unfold more grandly than in this volume. Authoritative, vividly written, and exquisitely designed, it will be treasured by everyone who loves opera. In its lavish amalgam of theatrical and musical resources, its flamboyant charm, its extravagant appeal to the heart and the mind, and its seemingly inexhaustible power to move and astonish us, opera is clearly the most spectacular of all the arts. Now, in this beautifully illustrated, oversized volume–boasting over 250 pictures, 30 in full color–eleven leading authorities chronicle the full sweep of this stunning musical genre, ranging from the earliest known works to such recent experimental efforts as Robert Wilson and Philip Glass's Einstein on the Beach .

Oxmo Puccino's 1998 debut, Opéra Puccino, was produced almost entirely by DJ Mars, who evidently gleans inspiration from Pete Rock and DJ Premier. His alternately sensitive and rugged beats are a fitting backdrop for the French-language MC’s low-profile yet tense flow. “Mensongeur” is a surprising dancefloor diversion, where Puccino is pitched somewhere between Notorious B.I.G. and Mase.

If there ever were a testament to Ray Davies' stubbornness and ornery perversity, it's Soap Opera. Released after the draining, two-part, hopelessly muddled rock opera Preservation, Soap Opera is the grandest concept album the Kinks ever made. Davies' tackled a topic that seemed manageable compared to Preservation – how "Ordinary People" escape the doldrums with dreams of stardoms – but conceived the production as a bit of a radio play, with prominent guest vocalists and narration. Improbably, it feels larger, campier, more excessive than Preservation, even if it's considerably more focused and consistent.

Il Rosso: un ragazzo dai capelli ramati, sensuale e crudele. Un ragazzo perfetto. Un ragazzo che non esiste. Edward lo sogna da quando era bambino: il compagno immaginario di un’infanzia solitaria. Rowan lo odia perché Edward sembra amarlo più di ogni altra cosa. Ma cosa cerca davvero Edward nel Rosso, quali incubi sta tentando di fuggire? E perché Rowan non riesce a smettere di ritrarre un soggetto che in realtà detesta? Ambientato fra i grattacieli di Manhattan e una villa maledetta a Long Island, il romanzo racconta il percorso che Edward e Rowan dovranno compiere per sigillare nella tela di un quadro il legame che li unisce…
