“Not only are Pullen and Taylor on the mark, but their critical acuity adds conviction to their conclusion that Montserrat Caballe may be the last authentic prima donna.”—Stephanie von Buchau, Opera News

The first full-length authorized biography of one of the twentieth century's greatest operatic sopranos

This is the story of Montserrat Caballe's life and career from her childhood in war-torn Spain, through her years of training and struggle, to her current world-star status. The authors draw on a wealth of the diva's private documents, photographs, and personal reminiscences, and provide a shrewd and evenhanded analysis of her art, both on stage and in recordings.
