Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind ( Book )
56 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,063 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
Frühlings Erwachen eine Kindertragödie by Frank Wedekind ( Book )
252 editions published between 1891 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unterm Novembermond auf dem Kirchhof, zwischen zwei Toten, zwei Opfern der Furcht vor Schande, bei diesem erstickenden Ende bleibt es in Wedekins Frühlings Erwachen nicht: es erscheint der "Vermummte Herr", der den Melchior zum Leben verführen will, und es gelingt ihm. Er ist das Leben mit all seinen abenteuerlichen Möglichkeiten, er sagt zu Melchior: "Du lernst micht nicht kennen, ohne dich mir anzuvertrauen", und er zieht Melchior von den Gräbern fort: wenigstens für Melchior erwacht der Lebensfrühling dann doch noch, wenn auch zwischen Toten, in einer Novembernacht

Spring awakening : a children's tragedy by Frank Wedekind ( Book )
10 editions published between 1969 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind's play 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." -- publisher's web site
Lulu [Oper in drei Akten nach den Tragödien Erdgeist und Büchse der Pandora von Frank Wedekind] by Alban Berg ( Recording )
43 editions published between 1952 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 319 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
