Publisher's Summary

For over two decades Charles Long thrilled opera audiences, performing at some of America's and the world's most famous venues, and singing alongside some of its greatest stars. In his insightful, frank and humorous new memoir, Long recounts many of those experiences. In the process he sheds light into a world many of us respect, admire and love, but which few of us have ever encountered in such intimate detail.

Critic Reviews

"Opera singer Charles Long is a skilled wordsmith, and his narration adds verve and energy to his story. The result is a fun and enlightening listening experience. His elegant foreign accents add authenticity, with his best creation being, of course, himself. Particularly amusing is his colorful and frank description about being a straight guy in a world abounding with gay men. Also, his spirited account of the time he and his boss, an Italian restaurant owner, retreated to a back alley to settle a dispute over a microphone is amusing. Adding to the listening pleasure are gorgeous snippets of opera music." (AudioFile)
