Gianni Truvianni; Author Of The Book “New York’s Opera Society”
My name is Gianni Truvianni; American by birth as I was born in New York City. Home to the “Metropolitan Opera House” which is without a doubt one of the greatest opera houses in the world along with so many others that I will not even attempt to mention them in fear of leaving any out. However what I will mention is that it was the “New York Metropolitan Opera House” along with the social life and grand music that surround this bastion of culture that inspired my novel “New York’s Opera Society”.
Regarding my knowledge of opera and classical music this I must confess that though what I feel is passion; I am but limited to playing the role of “serious aficionado” or what I would categorize as such. I only knowing what I do from the books I have read along with having spent the last ten years of my life listening exclusively to classical music and opera on DVD as well as “Mezzo”. “Mezzo” being a French channel which broadcasts classical music, opera and Jazz 24 hours a day. Listening at home conversely is not what I have limited myself to as I have also in recent years become a regular at Warsaw’s opera house (Teart Wielki) where I have seen just about every opera production offered from “Carmen” (Bizet) to “La Traviata” (Verdi). This last opera serving as the inspiration to my story “The Little Opera Singer” which is the tale of my daughter’s first opera outing and can be found on my website www.new-york-society.com
