Les Huguenots by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

163 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After dominating the international opera stage for more than 30 years, Dame Joan Sutherland takes a final bow in her stunning farewell performance of Les Huguenots, Meyerbeer's grand French opera. Now regarded as one of the most memorable nights in Australia's musical history, Sutherland's formidable vocal skill is on full display throughout the demanding score, while conductor Richard Bonynge inspires orchestral brilliance at every turn
Le prophète by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

107 editions published between 1970 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meyerbeer's grand operas once ruled the operatic world, but they're rarities today. With this performance the Met pulled out all the stops to show modern audiences what all the fuss was about. James McCracken is Jean of Lyden, a simple innkeeper who is proclaimed the Prophet and who leads a religious uprising in medieval Holland. During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him. The opera ends catastrophically but is filled with colorful music
Les Huguenots: The Manuscript Facsimiles by Giacomo Meyerbeer( )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and French and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This huge exploration of faith, tolerance, hatred, extermination, love, loyalty, self-sacrifice and hope in despair, is the first panel of a central diptych on the Reformation, and the heart of the wider tetralogy of Meyerbeer's grand operas, where issues of power, religion and love are examined in a variety of modes. For five years after the sensational première of Robert le Diable, Meyerbeer was thought to be resting on his laurels. Instead, he was drudging over a gigantic drama, partly ada
Il crociato in Egitto : melo-dramma eroico in due atti by Giacomo Meyerbeer( )

40 editions published between 1824 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reproduces the Ricordi vocal score of Meyerbeer's last Italian opera (Milan, c. 1825). More than hardly any other opera of the first third of the nineteenth century, Il Crociato in Egitto (Venice, 1814) appears as work standing between the epochs. In its engagement Other the traditions of the melodramma, Meyerbeer exploited here to the full all the possibilities offered by the form, Otherout actually questioning its nature. Whereas Rossini in his Neapolitan operas had undertaken a
Le Prophète : the Manuscript Facsimiles by Giacomo Meyerbeer( )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and French and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Prophète is the second panel of Meyerbeer's Reformation diptych, his darkest and most mysterious opera. It explores issues of power and religion, fanaticism and faith, betrayal and trust, the demonic forces of history and the witness of little people caught up in them-the ultimate and enduring sacrificial power of love. In some ways it is almost like a political pamphlet or religious tract, and its oppressive but fascinating world can cast a compulsive spell. The plot is based on the revo

The manuscripts scores contained in this collection further extend knowledge about Meyerbeer's non-operatic compositions-instrumental, choral and occasional. These totally unknown works by a great operatic master range from a substantial cantata in the style of a dramatic monologue (for tenor solo with chorus and brass orchestra), through a brassy celebratory processional march, to a brief unaccompanied chorus of welcome. All the pieces are linked by their association with the various Germa
