Doctor Atomic by John Adams( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Adams and Peter Sellars' opera about Robert Oppenheimer, at the Nederlandse Opera in Amsterdam. Which better subject John Adams and Peter Sellars could have chosen to denonciate the fall of the modern world? The atomic bomb and its inventor, Robert Oppenheimer (Gerald Finley), are in the middle of the action of this opera, which premiered in 2005 at the San Francisco Opera. After him, the world will never be the way it used to be, and is inexorably shifting towards the nuclear era. And yet, this opera focuses on common and universal problems, including love stories and broken hearts. The title of this opera reminds us of the famous movie by Stanley Kubrick (Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb), and features fantastic artists such as Gerald Finley who created the role in 2005: it is without any doubt a masterpiece which "modernizes" the issues on the lyric planet

Ercole Amante by Francesco Cavalli( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Italian and English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This hilarious contemporary version of Francesco Cavalli's baroque opera Hercules in Love was commissioned on occasion of the marriage of Louis XIV, the Sun King, to Maria Theresa of Spain. The original production took two years to complete and was at the time the greatest show ever performed in Europe. Directed by David Alden, this surreal production is a triumph of commedia buffa resplendent with decorative and symbolic elements, and complemented by Constance Hoffman's exceptional costumes. Led by Ivor Bolton, a master of baroque music, the chorus of De Nederlandse Opera and Concerto Köln give a sublime performance. With Luca Pisaroni's (Ercole) singing being heroic and melodious in turn, and Veronica Cangemi as a splendid Iole, this is an outstanding production by the DNO
Kindertotenlieder by Gustav Mahler( Recording )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahr 1918 wurde mit dem Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen in Wien eine neuartige und bis heute konzeptionell spannende Veranstaltungsform etabliert. Eine in der Repertoirepflege dominierende Praxis war jene der künstlerisch hochqualitativen Bearbeitung von groß besetzten Werken für Klavier und kleinere Ensembles. Diese historischen Voraussetzungen dienten als Inspiration für die vorliegende Produktion mit Werken von Gustav Mahler und Alban Berg, hier in einer Neuinterpretation durch drei Komponisten unserer Zeit. Rainer Riehn konnte aufgrund seiner Ergänzungen an Schönberg-Bearbeitungen von Mahler-Orchesterliedern eine reiche Erfahrung mit der Bearbeitungspraxis des Vereins gewinnen und interpretiert Mahlers Kindertotenlieder neu. Alban Bergs Violinkonzert, ein musikalisches Epitaph, wurde durch den Komponisten und Arrangeur Andreas N. Tarkmann für das Linos-Ensemble in eine neue Klanggestalt gebracht. Die kammerorchestrale Einrichtung der Altenberg-Lieder Bergs schließlich geht auf den dänischen Komponisten und Musiktheoretiker Diderik Wagenaar zurück
