245pp Illustrations. Reginald Goodall conducted the triumphant 1945 premiere of Britten's Peter Grimes, but it was not until the Wagner performances of his last two decades that he became well known. In this update of his 1993 book Reggie, John Lucas uses letters, diaries and interviews with Goodall himself to unravel the mysteries of his early life and wartime Mosleyite sympathies; he also catalogues the frustrations of Goodall's years at Covent Garden and the positive critical responses to his Ring cycle.
