The last of the castrati, the legendary eunuch-divas who seduced and appalled the opera houses of Europe for over two centuries, is said to have died in 1922 ... but from the shadows of a ruined theatre a sinister 100 year old figure emerges. Half man, half woman, robed in velvet and glittering with diamonds - dressed to kill for one final, fatal, farewell performance. 1991 Writers Guild Award winner.Book by Honore de Balzac.
