The Makropulos case focuses on the issue of longevity - the pros and cons of living for 337 years, as happens to the mysterious Emilia Marty, the sexually irresistible prima donna who's seen it all and done it all. Part grotesque human comedy, part profound personal tragedy, Janáček's opera examines the eternal mystery of human existence with uniquely life-enhancing vision

37 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance
