The P. Craig Russell Library of OPERA ADAPTATIONS, Vol. 3

P. Craig Russell

This collection of Russell’s classic adaptations concludes with Pelleas & Melisande by Maeterlinck and Debussy, Salome by Richard Strauss and the all new The Godfather’s Code from Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni.


"Russell's take on Pelleas et Melisande, is nothing if not ambitious. Salome, is similarly treated but arguably more satisfying."

"...Ravishing...Epic... His ambitious plan to adapt the great works of opera into comics form is audacious, but his flowing, poetic lines and fanciful colors are an art in and of themselves."
-Publishers Weekly

"Highest rating (5Q). Russell continues to demonstrate his versatility and skill in this latest faithful adaptation."

"An admirable job!"
