1 Stockdale, Freddie Figaro Here, Figaro There - Pavilion Opera : An Impresario's Diary
London John Murray 1991 0719549701 / 9780719549700 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Fine Stockdale, Freddie 
A near Fine copy (Fine apart from a small name to front endpaper) with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. Pavilion Opera, founded in 1981 by Freddie Stockdale, is one of the operatic successes of the 1980's, comprising a troupe of talented, energetic, young professional singers, performing in the great rooms of Britain's country houses as well as in exotic locations overseas. The book is the witty and revealing diary of a year in the life of this remarkable company, covering a varied repertoire of operas - from first auditions, through casting, costuming and rehearsals, to the performances themselves. As the dramas of the year unfold - victories and defeats in love, triumphs and disasters on stage - we are transported into the kaleidoscopic world of entertainment. The diary also paints a parallel portrait of the country house in the 1980's, some great houses like Blenheim and Chatsworth, others more notable for their eccentric inhabitants. Illustrated throughout with Freddie Stockdale's own irreverent sketches.
