Filled with the spare but beautiful illustrations of the incomparable Dillons, Ms. Price outlines the operatic role that made her famous. The illustrations remind us that Ethiopia and Egypt are African nations and the clothing, architecture and skin color of the various people remind us of that fact. Each page is bracketed by flowers while the odd pages are headed by Egyptian-style pictures that fill in the action on the pages.

This slim book can serve both as a straightforward story or an introduction to Verdi’s opera. Either way, this is a sumptuous work, a beauteous possession for anyone who is a fan of the Dillons.
