Summary :

In 1920, a bomb exploded at Havana's Teatro Nacional, during a performance of Aida. Enrico Caruso, who was singing the role of Radames, fled the theatre. This much is true.

In this novel, Montero imagines an affair between Caruso and Aida Petrirena Cheng, an affair predicted by her santero godfather, who also predicts Caruso's death.
