"Essential reading for any Star Trek and movie fan." -trekmovie.com When Nicholas Meyer was asked to direct the troubled second Star Trek film, he was something less than a true believer. A bestselling author and successful director, he had never been a fan of the TV series. But as he began to ponder the appeal of Kirk, Spock, et al., he realized that their story was a classical nautical adventure yarn transplanted into space and-armed with that insight-set out on his mission: to revitalize Trek.

William Bolcom

A View from the Bridge, with a libretto by Arnold Weinstein and Arthur Miller, is a faithful adaptation of the Arthur Miller play. Set in the Sicilian-American community of 1950s Brooklyn, this story deals with the timeless themes of classical tragedy: incestuous love, jealousy, betrayal and revenge. The opera was premiered at Lyric Opera of Chicago in 1999. The same production was performed at the Metropolitan Opera in 2002. The score was somewhat revised for the Metropolitan Opera performances, with a few added arias. This Vocal Score presents the revised version. A recording of the Chicago production of the opera was released by New World Records.

Arthur Miller

Eddie Carbone is a longshoreman and a straightforward man, with a strong sense of decency and of honour. For Eddie, it's a privilege to take in his wife's cousins, straight off the boat from Italy. But, as his niece begins to fall for one of them, it's clear that it's not just, as Eddie claims, that he's too strange, too sissy, too careless for her, but that something bigger, deeper is wrong, and wrong inside Eddie, in a way he can't face. Something which threatens the happiness of their whole family.
