Conrad L. Osborne, the author of Opera as Opera: The State of the Art, will do a live Q&A for Bel Canto Boot Camp on Sunday, 26 September at 3pm EDT. Conductor Will Crutchfield will moderate the broadcast, and opera lovers all over the world can submit their questions for Mr. Osborne. The event can be accessed on Eventbrite. A pay-what-you-can donation is requested. For more information, click here. Mr. Osborne is one of the most highly respected writers about opera living today and is the object of a devoted following among serious devotées of the genre. He started writing for Opera News as a young man and quickly demonstrated the extraordinary combination of technical knowledge and deep insight for which he has become known, expanding his palette over the years to High Fidelity, Financial Times, Opus, New York Times, Metropolitan Opera Guides to Opera on Records and Video, and Musical America. Today his musings and analysis can be found on his entertaining and highly informative blog, Osborne on Opera (Osborne on Opera: A Critical Blog).

Opera as Opera is about to go into its 3rd printing, an unusual milestone for a book of such intellectual heft. Distribution of the book has been changed so that libraries and retail stores can now order it with ease.
