W.H. Auden and Chester Kallman : libretti and other dramatic writings by W.H. Auden, 1939-1973 by W. H Auden( Book )

19 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"W. H. Auden called opera the "last refuge of the High Style," and considered it the one art in which the grand manner survived the ironic levelings of modernity. He began writing libretti soon after he arrived in America in 1939 and abandoned his earlier attempts to write public, political drama. Opera gave him the opportunity to rise to the high style in public, not in an attempt to elevate his own status as a poet, but in service of the heroic voice of the singers. These works present their mythical actions with a direct intensity unlike anything in even his greatest poems. In this volume of Auden and Chester Kallman's libretti, extensive historical and textual notes trace the history of the production and revision of the works and provide full texts of early scenarios, as well as abandoned and rewritten scenes." "Almost all the works included here were previously published in incomplete and often inaccessible editions - or were never published at all. The book prints for the first time the full text of Paul Bunyan, Auden's first libretto, which he wrote for music by Benjamin Britten. It also includes Auden and Kallman's The Rake's Progress, written for Igor Stravinsky, and Delia, written for Stravinsky but never set to music. The work continues with Auden and Kallman's two libretti written for music by Hans Werner Henze, Elegy for Young Lovers and The Bassarids, and their adaptation of Love's Labour's Lost, composed by Nicolas Nabokov. It also contains their translation of The Magic Flute, with its scenes reordered for greater dramatic coherence and added dialogue for sharper mythical significance, and their antimasque, The Entertainment of the Senses, for music by John Gardner."

Oedipus Rex ; The rake's progress by Igor Stravinsky( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stravinsky's genius for the stage is here represented by two very different works. "Oedipus Rex" is the fruit of a collaboration with Jean Cocteau, in which the tragedy of Sophocles is pared down to make an opera-oratorio. This guide explores the ways in which this is achieved, and analyses the score. It also surveys the composition period of "The Rake's Progress", examining the contributions of the different collaborators. The Latin text and English translation is included for "Oedipus Rex", and the English libretto for "The Rake's Progress."
