Reviews - What do customers think about Lost Divas?

What a moving and beautiful experience to see these collection of great portraits of almost and totally forgotten divas of Opera from the early twentieth century and hear some of her voices (16 cuts on a specially produced CD , cleverly selected and well remastered, mounted on the inside of the back cover). With a big size and stylish design. printed with great care on high quality paper, this is a rare book, absolutely unmissable if you love Opera or just great Photography. So sad to think how little of that old grace and style can be found on the pathetic divas of showbiz today.
Stunning photos from the days when opera was really grand  Dec 26, 2006
Thank you, Andre Tubeuf. By scouring second-hand shops and flea-markets in Paris, he managed to collect a remarkable record of opera singers who were famous in their day, and now are largely unknown. Some are more famous than others (for example, Mary Garden, who was the first Melisande in Debussy's opera, or Rosa Ponselle) but in many cases, the more obscure divas are the most pleasurable to see here. Like Marie Gutheil-Schoder, who sang under Mahler at the Vienna Opera, or the terrifying Anna von Mildenburg (another Mahler discovery). The book thoughtfully includes a CD so we can hear as well as see these astonishing creatures. If you've read Wayne Koestenbaum's The Queen's Throat (and if you haven't read it, you should!), this book could function as illustrations for his chapter on "Codes of Diva Conduct."
