Teapot Opera
by Arthur Tress
Publisher's Description
"You are cordially invited to attend the Teapot Opera--a charming production in three acts. The curtain goes up, and we see a lone teapot on a miniature stage in front of a painted backdrop. With this simple beginning, Arthur Tress's absorbing photographs and disarming text combine to enact the story of the birth of an idea and its journey toward artistic fruition. Tress characterizes these abstract concepts with delightful scenes composed of figurines, toys, games, and objects, giving his operatic stage the feeling of a turn-of-the-century music hall crossed with your favorite antique store."--the publisher.
