Lucrezia Borgia by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

68 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Victor Hugo's most sensational play, 'Lucrece Borgia', a scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian 'bel canto' repertoire. While omitting some of its more excessive elements, the libretto by Felice Romani inspired Donizetti to compose superb arias, duets, ensembles and choruses, bringing each act to a stirring conclusion. Brimming with high drama and pathos, this production stars Greek diva Dimitra Theodossiou in the infamous title role, praised for her stupendous acting and singing as England's Queen Elizabeth I in Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux'

Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

Freddie Mercury : the great pretender by Freddie Mercury( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Freddie Mercury was one of the most charismatic, complex, and fascinating characters in British rock music. The story of Queen is a well known one, but this new film focuses on Freddie Mercury and the solo projects he worked on outside of Queen. Using extensive archive footage of interviews with Freddie Mercury, concerts, video shoots, and personal material, much of it previously unseen, along with new interviews with friends and colleagues, a portrait emerges of a man who was very different from his flamboyant onstage public persona
