New books about Sarah Caldwell
A new biography has just been published about Sarah Caldwell, the larger than life conductor and music director of the Opera Company of Boston. Also, Caldwell's memoirs have also just been released. As a woman who could create and steer an entire artistic enterprise, Caldwell was a real anomaly in the top echelon of the opera world. She appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1975 and became the first woman to conduct at the Metropolitan Opera and the second to conduct the New York Philharmonic.
