  • This is the first book in English to provide an introduction to this fascinating field. From the history and origins of Lhamo, the book describes opera in Tibet and looks at each aspect of the performance today. Synopses of nine enchanting opera stories are included. Since the communist Chinese assumed control of Tibet in 1959, existence of many aspects of Tibetan culture have been threatened. Lhamo, Tibetan opera is one of these. The book will go a long way in preserving the authentic opera of Tibet.

She was working as a freelance journalist for the BBC in Cape Town when her husband died suddenly of a stroke, leaving her with three children under four and half years old.

She spent many years at the BBC as a journalist, specialising in East Asian and then world news for the BBC World Service, before moving to BBC News Online where she was an editor of interactive media. Joanna wrote "Lhamo: Opera from the roof of the world", whilst teaching English to Tibetan refugees in India.
