Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

27 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem

Cinderella by Sergey Prokofiev( Visual )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An adaptation of Charles Perrault's fairy tale by Rudolf Nureyev, putting Cinderella beneath the spotlight. When Rudolf Nureyev asked set designer Petrika Ionesco to work on his forthcoming ballet, he did not expect him to give such an innovative arrangement of Perrault's or Petipa's Cinderella. Still, after a hostile reaction, the choreographer was seduced by the idea. Because in essence, the "topic" was preserved, although modernized. A young woman is victimized by a morbid family, and her only wish is to escape the oppressive world in which she lives. One day, her kindness is rewarded: while she runs to help a person who needs help, she changes her destiny forever. This character, who embodies the fairy in Perrault's tale, is a Hollywood producer... And this is how Nureyev turns the film star into a modern prince charming. This refreshing version of Cinderella has featured in the repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet since its creation in 1986. This arrangement of Perrault's tale, whether tragic or grotesque, presents great difficulties for the dancers. They must display great qualities in acting (for instance Stéphane Phavorin playing the part of the mother), but also rare technical skills, like Cinderella (Agnès Letestu) who has to be very comfortable with the technique of pointes, as well as tap-dance, and ballroom dancing in high heels (Act II)!

Eine Alpensinfonie by Richard Strauss( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dies ist eine Aufnahme, von der man als Hörer sehr viel lernen kann. Es ist gewusst, dass Musik von Richard Strauss wirklich gut klingt, wenn sie von einem Toporchester wie der Staatskapelle Dresden, dem Concertgebouw Amsterdam oder den Wiener Philharmonikern gespielt wird..... Nun kommt ein Dirigent wie Sebastian Weigle daher und legt sich mit den 'Großen"an. Er weiß genau, dass sein Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester ein hervorragender Klangkörper ist, der aber nicht mit den Wienern & Co zu vergleichen ist. Was macht also Weigle? Er akzeptiert die Grenzen seines Orchesters und versucht auch nie, darüber hinaus zu gehen. Vielmehr nutzt er die Chance und liest die 'Alpensinfonie' recht vertikal. Er verlässt somit den sicheren Pfad Strauss'scher Klangopulenz und bewegt sich auf den 'Nebenpfaden'. Und wie ein Bergführer nimmt er den Hörer mit sich und zeigt ihm die ganze Alpenwelt von einer anderen Seite. Hier hört man plötzlich ganz neuartig wirkende Farben, neue Schattierungen, Crescendi und Akzente. Alles wirkt zwar vertraut und erscheint doch in einer komplett neuen Aufmischung, die der Musik unendlich gut tut. Und so fasziniert man von den Einspielungen Karajans, Thielemanns, Kempes und vielen anderen sein kann, man muss dieser Frankfurter Aufnahme allerhöchste Integrität und künstlerisches Können zugestehen" (pizzicato.lu)
Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

4 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
