A society matron underwrites the interstellar journey of an Earth opera corporation, acting Beethoven, Mozart and Rossini for bewildered human and alien audiences on a kaleidoscopic variety of planets. yet intrigue and mystery agendas complicate what was once already a uncertain company, and the matron’s feckless nephew unearths that the easy nation woman he plans to marry is much extra mysterious than she seems.

This is Jack Vance at his funniest, rolling out a rollicking picaresque story the place the stomach laughs play an ideal duet with the grandmaster’s sly observations at the absurdities of lifestyles, love and librettos.
