Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind( Book )

115 editions published between 1908 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind's play Spring Awakening closed after one night in New York in 1917 amid public outrage and charges of obscenity. The play's content was radical indeed: teenage sex, suicide, abortion, masturbation, sadomasochism. But even more radical was the unsentimental and brutally authentic comedy with which Wedekind treated it. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of four teenagers, Melchior, Moritz, Wendla, and Hansy, who, in their painfully funny contradictions - they are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all - remain fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture. Thanks to the acclaimed novelist Jonathan Franzen, we now have a definitive new translation, one unique in capturing the bizarre comic spirit that animates every scene of this classic play."--book jacket
Frühlings Erwachen eine Kindertragödie by Frank Wedekind( Book )

172 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wedekind wandte sich in seinen Werken gegen schulische Dressur, bürgerliche Scheinheiligkeit und Prüderie. Seine Werke fielen oftmals der Zensur zum Opfer. Frühlings Erwachen, inzwischen ein Klassiker, erscheint nun zum 150. Geburtstag von Frank Wedekind erstmals als illustriertes Buch. Frank Wedekind schreibt Frühlings Erwachen im Jahre 1891, da ist er Mitte zwanzig. In seinem Stück verarbeitet er den Selbstmord eines Schulkameraden und zeigt uns eine Jugend, die vergebens um sexuelle Aufklärung kämpft. Roberta Bergmann hat das Werk kongenial in Szene gesetzt. Ihre Illustrationen erinnern an die Zeit des Jugendstils, sie wirken direkt und kraftvoll. Bei der Buchgestaltung hat sich Roberta Bergmann am klassischen Draa orientiert, das sie hier in einer frischen und ungewöhnlichen Aufmachung präsentiert

Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new version of Frank Wedekind's extraordinary play Spring Awakening has been specially commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The themes it addresses and the sheer energy of the writing make this masterpiece of German symbolism startlingly relevant today. With its scenes of pubescent angst, sexual outspokenness, rape and homosexuality, the play still, more than one hundred years after it was first staged, has the power to shock. Ted Hughes's version lends the dialogue a particularly modern terseness and bite, drawing out all the erotic energy of the original

34 editions published between 1958 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance
