A glass of water by Eugène Scribe( Book )
322 editions published between 1817 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Don't look now, but... what dramatic form would you expect the French to impose on English history? Bedroom farce, of course. Good Queen Anne and the Churchills, Winston's ancestors, are here in Eugene Scribe's 19th-century classic, riding high as the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. While the Duke is struggling against the armies of Louis XIV, the Duchess is trying to inveigle Abigail Churchill's beau into bed, not knowing the girlish Queen wants him too. It's a perfect opportunity for the wily politician Bolingbroke. As seen through French eyes, these English historical characters would never recognize themselves. In fact, they'd be shocked!

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of Opera Classics Library is to unlock opera's mysteries for the general audience, and enlighten and educate. Understanding and knowledge are the master keys to enhance enjoyment and appreciation of this great art form.Alexandre Dumas, in the final words of his novel, La Dame aux Camelias, dutifully summed up the sense of poignancy that became the basis of one of Verdi's most treasured operas: "Sleep in peace, Marguerite! Much will be forgiven you for you have greatly loved." La Traviata is an intimate portrait of a woman's agonizing defeat against the forces of destiny. Verdi's music score is a tone poem that musically captures the story's profound human passions and psychological depth

I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
62 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader

Tenor Juan Diego Flórez gives a sensational performance in the title role of Rossini's rarely heard, gender-bending comedy. Disguised as nuns, Ory and his men gain entrance to the castle of Countess Adèle (Pretty Yende in her Met debut), but the Counts attempts at seduction go comically wrong. Karine Deshayes is Isolier, Ory's page who is also in love with the Countess and determined to beat the Count at his own game. Nathan Gunn sings Raimbaud, Ory's boon companion, and bel canto specialist Maurizio Benini conducts

Halévy's gripping opera had not been heard at the Met for almost 70 years when it was revived for tenor Neil Shicoff a month before this broadcast. His searing account of Eléazar, a Jewish goldsmith burdened by a terrible secret quickly became a modern operatic classic. Soile Isokoski is his beloved daughter Rachel, in love with a man who turns out not to be Samuel, a simple workman in her father's shop, but Prince Léopold (Eric Cutler). Rachel is sent to her gruesome death by Cardinal de Brogni (Ferruccio Furlanetto), who discovers Eléazar's secret too late
