Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

121 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi was justifiably pleased with Macbeth , his tenth opera and his first on a Shakespearian subject - it would long remain his own favourite among his 'early period' operas. Eighteen years later, at the invitation of the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris, he substantially revised the score, and this version (sung in Italian) is presented here in Pier Luigi Pizzi's visually arresting 2007 production. The talented young cast is headed by Giuseppe Altomare as Macbeth, one of Verdi's most profoundly modern anti-heroes - a political animal driven to bloody regicide yet doomed by his very success - with Olha Zhuravel as his obsessively ambitious wife, driven to madness by her own guilt

2 editions published between 1862 and 1863 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Don Alvaro, or The Force of Fate by Angel de Saavedra, Duke of Rivas (1791-1865), premiered in 1835 in Madrid and changed the Spanish state forever after. It was the benchmark Romantic play of early nineteenth-century Spain. The play tells of the torrid love of the mysterious Don Alvaro and the lovely Dona Leonor, and how fate intervenes to bring about the extermination of Leonor's family at the hands of the man who loves her to distraction. In this English edition, Robert Fedorchek presents a readable translation faithful to the tone and spirit of the original. Joyce Tolliver enhances the book with a rich introduction highlighting the work's lasting significance."--Jacket
