Norton Acquires New Domingo Work

by Calvin Reid

The Joy of Opera, a new nonfiction work by superstar opera singer Plácido Domingo, has been acquired by W.W. Norton in a mid-six figure deal. The book was acquired by Norton executive editor Robert Weil and will be published in 2009. The deal was negotiated by Domingo’s literary agent Steve Wasserman of Kneerim & Williams at Fish & Richardson.

Norton publicity director Louise Brockett said the book is Domingo’s first original book in almost 20 years. Domingo serves as general director of both the Los Angeles Opera and the Washington National Opera while he continues to perform as a singer and conductor in the U.S. and abroad. The book includes photographs and will survey Domingo’s passion for opera, provide insights into musical performance and discuss the works of the great composers.
