Marie-Grace is excited that a well-known English opera company will perform in New Orleans–at the same theater where she takes singing lessons from Aunt Océane. Even better, her aunt has gotten a role in the opera! As Marie-Grace and her friend, Cécile, help out during rehearsals, they're thrilled to meet real opera stars and get a peek into theater life. But thrills turn to chills as the girls make disturbing discoveries behind the scenes! An illustrated "Looking Back" essay describes New Orleans' place as a leading cultural center for opera and theater in 1800s America.

This is the best book ever.In this book, we meet Marie Grace Gardner, and her best friend, Cecile Rey. Marie Grace is thrilled to stay with her dear Aunt Ocean in the Royal Music Hall, especially when an Opera company from London is visiting. Soon, Marie Grace’s thrills turn to chills, when several things go wrong.A diamond crown disappears, a cat appears in the stars dressing room, and the beautiful dresses are soaked in water. Soon Marie Grace finds out the winner who is… It is the right pick if you are looking for a mystery book for ages 8 – 12.

As with most AG mysteries, the story is fairly simple. I was able to figure out who but only just before Marie-Grace did and certainly not why. A secondary mystery is very transparent. The book kept me turning the pages until the end. I especially loved the historical details about opera and New Orleans. I could easily imagine myself sleuthing with Marie-Grace. I also really enjoyed seeing Marie-Grace and Cecile interact more than they do in the core series. This is a good one for fans of both the girls.

Great Mystery for Girls to Read

I’m very sad that American Girl is discontinuing Marie-Grace. All of her books are very good, wholesome stories about a sweet girl that is always trying to do the right thing. I hope the books stay around.

Exciting, adventurous, mysterious, and beautifully written, this book is one of my favorites of Marie Grace And Cecile. Young girls will definitely love being caught up in the magical world of New Orleans theater. The facts about backstage production during an opera are fantastic, and the storyline is original, fast pace, and enchanting.
