"La Traviata, one of the world's best-loved romantic operas, is performed under the starts on a floating, mirrored stage on Sydney Harbour, with the city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge acting as a stunning backdrop. Giuseppe Verdi's captivating music is performed with the orchestra concealed in a studio beneath the stage to ensure the finest amplified sound combines with the superlative singing of the cast. Emma Matthews thrills as the courtesan Violetta who, against her better judgement, falls in love with Alfredo, the dazzling Italian tenor Gianluca Terranova. But their relationship is doomed on two counts: Violetta's illness, and society's moral views of a courtesan's place within their world. With a colossal, glittering Swarovski chandelier illuminating the stage and fireworks embellishing the night-sky this is a La Traviata without equal"--Container
Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

77 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 965 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

"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.

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
