Television opera : the fall of opera commissioned for television by Jennifer Barnes( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contrasts the buoyant initial intentions of television's policy makers and creative advisers with the subsequent inability (for various reasons) to deliver as intended. The decline in the relationship between television and its commissioned operas is charted through three case studies: Menotti's Amahl and the Night Visitors (NBC), Britten's Owen Wingrave (BBC), and Gerald Barry's The Triumph of Beauty and Deceit (Channel 4) - the first a live broadcast, the second a video recording, and the third a filmed opera made for television."--Jacket
Shakespearean star : Laurence Olivier and national cinema by Jennifer Barnes( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laurence Olivier was one of the best-known and most pioneering actor-directors of Shakespeare on screen. This is the first study to provide a comprehensive analysis of Olivier's Shakespearean feature films and his unique Shakespearean star image. Through an in-depth examination of Olivier's little-known, unmade film Macbeth, as well as his adaptations of Shakespeare's Henry V, Hamlet and Richard lll, Jennifer Barnes offers a detailed exploration of Olivier's entire cinematic Shakespearean oeuvre in relation to his distinctive form of stardom. Considering the development of Olivier's image in relation to the industrial and cultural contexts of the wartime and post-war British film and theatre industries, the volume also analyses Olivier's life writing and published autobiographies and is supplemented by numerous illustrations
