Nederlands Dans Theater( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video presents three early ballets by of one of the most important choreographers of the late 20th century, Prague born Jirí Kylián. The first two pieces are set to music by Igor Stravinsky. "Svadebka" is Kylián's version of "Les Noces," wherein a young bride and groom become betrothed through the workings of matchmakers, bid farewell to their parents, and are married in an ecstatic wedding ceremony. "Symphony of Psalms" is an ensemble piece, turning grim impersonality into a celebration of the spirituality of being, the glory of humanity and love. "Torso," set to music by Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, is a sexy, steamy look at two lost lovers--a sultry ambivalent woman, and an anguished man. It is unclear whether she is real or a figment of his imagination, or what role she plays in his distress

Così fan tutte : from the Opernhaus Zürich, Switzerland by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

2 editions published between 1984 and 1989 in Italian and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aside from "Le nozze di Figaro" and "Don Giovanni", Lorezo Da Ponte also wrote the libretto for "Cosi fan tutte", after a likely inspiration from a contemporary Viennese anecdote and Kaiser Joseph II himself. "Cosi fan tutte" had its grand premiere on the day before Mozart"s 34th birthday, on 26 January 1790, in the Hoftheater in Vienna, where it was a roaring success. Unfortunately, though, it was only performed five times due to the death of Joseph II on 20 February and the subsequent period of court mourning. There would be no further performances of "Cosi" in Vienna until after Mozart"s own death, when it played in the German translation. In spite of the straightforward plot, the opera "Cosi fan tutte" remains, in the words of producer Joachin Herz in 1983, "a fascinating puzzle". Mozart"s psychologizing, moralizing music opens up infinite expanses and levels in this seemingly so transparent operatic subject. This production by the Zurich Opera House had its premiere in February 2000. Cecilia Bartoli made her debut here as Fiordiligi, after having sung the two other "Cosi" roles Despina and Dorabella previously
