Cunningham, Rosemary
Those who think arts and culture in British Columbia is a recent development might be surprised to learn that opera has been flourishing in the province for well over a hundred years. The first full performance in Victoria took place in 1877 and in Vancouver in 1891. This first-ever history of opera in BC celebrates important milestones for BC's two major companies: Vancouver Opera's 50th anniversary, with the 30th anniversary of Pacific Opera Victoria following in 2010. It also marks the recent upsurge in the popularity of the venerable art form, with new opera groups and simul-cast venues proliferating across the province. Illustrated with over 100 exquisite photographs and rare archival images, "Bravo!" traces the history of opera in the province from its colourful origins in touring companies, to the determined efforts of BC's opera pioneers who laid the foundations for two of Canada's most renowned opera companies, culminating with in-depth reporting on recent developments at Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria. Special features include behind-the-scenes accounts of contemporary productions, full listings of Vancouver Opera, Pacific Opera Victoria and Modern Baroque Opera productions and detailed information on BC opera singers, composers and opera training in the province. 208pp.

Friedenberg, Daniel M.
This book offers a vivid account of the bloody, corruption-laden, yet engrossing history of land speculation in America, from pre-colonial times to the election of President Thomas Jefferson. Friedenberg conducts a fast-paced, eye-opening tour through the labyrinth of North American land deals, and in doing do exposes the real motives influencing some of the major events in our nation's history while placing the lives and careers of America's forefathers in a disturbing new light. Discover the powerful role that the desire for land played in carving out colonies in the New World and how greed sparked the French and Indian War and spawned an array of land companies created to make quick profits and displace Native Americans. Friedenberg explains how colonial merchants and traders were willing to risk revolution to achieve new western markets. He looks at the American Revolution through the eyes of those who speculated on land grants promised to soldiers and discusses how political intrigues among land company delegates at Congress influenced ratification of the Articles of Confederation and debate on the Constitution. He reveals the legacy of treason, fraud, treachery, and deceit as some of the most distinguished names in our early history sliced up the American pie. 423pp.
