This volume is an exciting inside look at the professional careers of America's leading cultural TV directors. Together, Merrill Brockway, Kirk Browning, and Roger Englander have revolutionized the way television covers music, dance, opera, and theatre. In interviews with Rose, they survey five decades of American television and tell of the challenges they faced, particularly the difficult task of translating works created for one medium to another. They also consider their collaborations with some of the great artists, such as George Balanchine, Martha Graham, Leonard Bernstein, and Gian Carlo Menotti.
