I have just finished reading Roberta's fascinating and interesting book about the famous D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, which sadly closed in 1982. If you fancy a light hearted and easy read - this book is for you. It's full of anecdotes from the members of the Company. Stories about the fun the 'family' had touring together for 48 weeks a year. Pranks they played on each other on and off stage, the highs and lows of their touring lives, the stories of landladies they encountered, Royal Command performances, etc. If you enjoyed following the old D'Oyly Carte Opera Company - then you'll enjoy this book. I thoroughly recommend it to you.
