Most widely held works by Roger Désormière
La règle du jeu : fantaisie dramatique de Jean Renoir = The rules of the game : a dramatic fantasy by Michel Leiris( Visual )

9 editions published between 1978 and 2006 in French and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cloaked in a comedy of manners, this scathing critique of corrupt French society is about a weekend hunting party at which amorous escapades abound among the aristocratic guests, which are also mirrored by the activities of the servants downstairs
The rules of the game = La règle du jeu( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners, in which a weekend at a marquis's countryside chateau lays bare some ugly truths about a group of haute bourgeois acquaintances. The film was a victim of tumultuous history: it was subjected to cuts after premiere audiences rejected it in 1939, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II. It wasn't reconstructed until 1959. That version, which has stunned viewers for decades, is presented here

Poil de carotte by Julien Duvivier( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

François' mother, Madame Lepic, hates him and she nicknames him "Poil de Carotte" (carrot hair). His father is more interested in politics and hunting than he is in him. In spite of the affection of his godfather and his friend Mathilde, whom he calls his "fiancé," young Poil de Carotte contemplates suicide. On a particularly difficult day, he attempts to hang himself. Mr. Lepic saves his life just in time and understands he is partly to blame
Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )

29 editions published between 1942 and 2011 in French and Undetermined and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Star conductor Simon Rattle leads a superb cast in this mesmerizing performance of Debussy's rarely staged opera. Stéphane Degout and Magdalena Kožená are the tragic title couple--lovers caught in a web of passion as strong as it is forbidden. Gerald Finley delivers a remarkable portrayal of Golaud, Mélisande's husband and Pelléas's half-brother, and Felicity Palmer is their mother, Geneviève. Willard White brings dramatic and vocal intensity to the brief but crucial role of the blind old king Arkel
