    1. If you love opera and I do this book is a must read Rudolph Bing was a key figure in opera production from the 1930s into the 1970s He oversaw the Metropolitan Opera in NYC from 1950 1972, including the move from the Old Met to Lincoln Center The book is chock full of great stories about the leading singers and conductors of the day There is also a surprising amount of humor in the book, too.

    2. I enjoyed this autobiography very much Rudolf Bing was the general manager of the Metropolitan Opera from 1950 to 1972, a very pivotal period in the company s history In fact, IMO it is no exaggeration to say that HE, HIMSELF WAS THE PIVOT who made all the great accomplishments of the MET during this period possible Mr Bing came to the Met at a time when it was in dire financial straits He revamped the ticketing system, strived to instill a sense good customer service at the box office which had [...]

    3. When I found this book, I saw it as of a curiosity than anything What it doesn t tell you in the summary is that Bing s life is fascinating both in his time before the Met and during his tenure at the Met As an native Austrian, he gives a unique perspective on the rise of the Nazis and on what Europe was like in the interwar period, which I found really interesting This book really exceeded my expectations the subject matter is interesting, and Bing is a funny and capable narrator.

    4. Editing to add If you fancy yourself an opera fan, you must, must, MUST read this book Scandalous in the way that only a true gentleman can be, a page turner from start to finish.Oh, my godEvery page is a treasure Right now WWII is unfolding through the eyes of someone who is not yet the General Director of the Met It s swiftly becoming one of the best books I ve ever read.

    5. Brilliant, loved to be able to see how an individual can do such a complicated job making it an form of art in itself just because it was his passion Inspiring to experience a person doing his job going above and beyond and Such a pity that with computerization we are challenging ourselves less and less I wonder how Sir R Bing would apply his skills today

    6. A fascinating read These colourful memoirs of Sir Rudolf Bing reminds us how the music world has changed from just a few decades ago.
