Sinopsis: In 1988 Jeremy Isaacs took over the job of running the Royal Opera House, and with it he inherited a plan. The Victorian building was to be closed for a massive and controversial redevelopment. Amid the struggle with bureaucracy, the public attack on Covent Garden management and dramatic resignations he brought that plan to fruition.
Críticas: After a brilliant career in broadcasting, including time as first chief executive at Channel 4 when he transformed the whole look of British television, Jeremy Isaacs took on the brave task of doing the same for the Royal Opera House, where he served as General Director for nine years. And that proved a rather trickier nut to crack. Opera has always riled the populists and when Covent Garden received £78 million from the National Lottery, everyone in the country seemed to think it was a waste of money. Isaacs did his best but one would have to say his spell there was only a partial success. Nevertheless, for those genuinely fascinated by the ins and outs, the bickerings and back-stabbings of a great opera company, this is a fascinating and ebullient read. There are also some good anecdotes, including one in which Mrs Thatcher stabs him in the chest with her forefinger and says, "This man is the devil." Jeremy has certainly had to suffer for the sake of art. -- Christopher Hart
