Summary
"The stage is Rome, the music is the opera, and the soprano the castrato. In her historically accurate fictional novel, Cry to Heaven, Anne Rice retells the composer's dilemma of who will sing the soprano arias - the most popular songs - when there is a papal ban against women performing: "and Guido perceived that when the woman is taken out of an entire realm of life that must needs imitate the world itself, then some substitute for that woman is inevitable. Something must rise to take the place of that which is feminine." That inevitable substitute is the castrato, the surgically altered boy whose voice will never change to that of a man's."--Amazon.com
