From the Publisher

Secrets, Tragedy, Courage and Love.

Master of Illusion Book 2 continues the story of the tormented genius, Angel, and his childhood friend, Elise, the prima ballerina who once graced the stage as La Belle and now directs their own opera house, the Opéra Magique. Their lives ensue in an entanglement of secrets, subterfuge, tragedy and love through which they battle their fated hand. Though the skeletons of the past continue to haunt, the veil concealing the truth begins to fall.

It is Paris,1892, and the Opéra Magique is riding a wave of unparalleled success, with the help of Sprite, the Master's popular, fairy-like assistant. Walking the fine line required to keep in abeyance the mutual passions of her star, the volatile magician known as the Master of Illusion, and her goddaughter, the beautiful comtesse de Villefontaine, Madame Dupont needs all her ingenuity to divert the jealous rage of the comte and the suspicions of Police Chief Captain Moreau.

Few people know the truth behind the Master's identity, yet one of them is, all unwittingly, about to give him away. But as their opera house and lives are plunged, yet again, into unthinkable tragedy, fate thrusts Angel and Elise—the Master and Madame—onto a new path of discovery: a path that holds both alluring revelations and nightmares of untold suffering.

Angel and Elise battle choices of life and death, of courage and sacrifice, as they finally discover the answers they've so longed for. But, in discovering the truth of the past, the truth about Angel and the truth about love, do they find the solace they so crave?

Can Angel and Elise overcome the barriers of fate, or will they be destroyed in their determination to do so?

Du Yun Wins Music Pulitzer For 'Angel's Bone'

Du Yun, a 39-year-old composer, musician and performance artist, today won the Pulitzer Prize for music for her opera Angel's Bone. The Pulitzer jury describes the piece as a bold work "that integrates vocal and instrumental elements and a wide range of styles into a harrowing allegory for human trafficking in the modern world." Angel's Bone, which has a libretto by the versatile Royce Vavrek (Missy Mazzoli's Breaking the Waves and David T. Little's Dog Days), was commissioned by New York's Prototype Festival and Trinity Wall Street, which staged the world premiere Jan. 6, 2016. The opera tell

Music Magazine: Sergio Mendoza, Vinyl Collectors And Tejano Punks On Film

Now and then, Alt.Latino offers programs that feature a single artist in conversation about life, art and anything else on their mind. But if we waited to speak with all of the artists who catch our attention one week at a time, it would take ... well, a long time. So this week, we offer three shorter profiles of artists — some DJs, a musician and a pair of filmmakers — who are capturing Latino culture in three very distinct forms. Sarah Ventre, from NPR Member station KJZZ in Tucson, Ariz., conducts a great Q&A with Tucson musician Sergio Mendoza. He talks about his love for 1940s-style mambo

The Ten Best Classical Music Performances Of The Year

1. Elektra Soprano Nina Stemme is one of opera’s loudest ladies, and also its most refined. She projects inner thoughts that rocket toward the Metropolitan Opera’s upper tiers but land like murmurs rather than proclamations. The vehicle for her spring triumph was a new production of Strauss’s opera by the recently deceased Patrice Chéreau. The staging, a tour de force of bleakness, set off Stemme’s opulent voice, the orchestra’s splendor, and Esa-Pekka Salonen’s luxuriantly restrained conducting. Stemme’s first Met appearance as Elektra was also her last; she retired the role after the run bu
