Here’s what it says on the cover:

There’s nothing new to be said about power. Everybody knows everything about it. Yet it surprises us continually. The librettos in this collection remind us, once again, and with a few bites in the backside here and there, of what people – nasties like Stalin, heroes like Beethoven – have done with it. Observers of Australian politics will know what some of these operas are about; in fact, the effect of the collection is to remind us that we are all on stage, day and night, in the crazy opera known as life - or would you prefer that with a capital L?
