Lindsey Templeton is a young and beautiful diva with the opera world at her feet. She has everything - a glittering career and a wonderful family, to whom she is devoted. But into her life walks opera-mad Russian billionaire Sergei Rebroff, who wants to buy his way into overall control of a European opera company. And when she falls pregnant, she doesn't know who the father is. Is it Sergei? Or is it her husband, Jamie Barlow, casting director of London's third opera company, Opera London? Set in the opera houses and festivals of Europe during the closing months of Tony Blair's premiership, My Wife the Diva is a comic romp through the glamorous but often murky world of international opera. It is also devastatingly honest about the anger and despair wrought on family and friends by the frenetic lifestyle of a jet-setting artist. "A Rabelaisian romp" (Jasper Rees Sunday Times) The author is opera singer John Graham-Hall, whose recent appearances have included Aschenbach in Britten's Death in Venice at ENO and La Scala, Milan.
