As Casey Stengal said, "You can look it up." The Metropolitan Annals tells it
all (until 1984-85), as well as "The Miracle of the Met" by Quaintance Eaton
(Meredith, 1968); "The Story of the Metropolitan Opera" by Irving Kolodin
(Knopf, 1953); "The Metropolitan Book of the Opera" (Simon Schuster, 1937);
"The Golden Horseshoe" (Opera News, 1965); "Magnificence Onstage At The Met"
by Robert Jacobson (Simon Schuster, 1985); "Saturday Afternoons At The Old
Met" by Paul Jackson (Amadeus, 1992) -- as well as other books that other
listers may want to add to the list.
