Ou l'histoire d'Adam et du Paradis perdu mise en scène dans une ancienne usine fabriquant des sous-marins à l'époque de l'URSS à Tallinn, en Estonie. Robert Wilson a intégré les caractéristiques particulières du site dans son dispositif. Une grande scène et une immense passerelle y ont été construites pour les besoins du spectacle. Celui-ci a pour fil directeur trois œuvres centrales d'Arvo Pärt : Adam's lament, Miserere et Tabula rasa. En outre, Pärt a composé une nouvelle pièce pour l'occasion, Sequentia, qui sert de prélude à la mise en scène d'Adam's Passion. Cette production à couper le souffle, dont la première mondiale a eu lieu le 12 mai dans la capitale estonienne, a été encensée par l'ensemble de la presse internationale. L'Orchestre de chambre de Tallinn, le Chœur de chambre philharmonique estonien et les solistes étaient dirigés par le chef d'orchestre Tõnu Kaljuste, qui a déjà officié sur bon nombre d'œuvres de Pärt

Salome by Richard Strauss( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oscar Wilde describes his Salome as containing "refrains whose recurring motifs make it so like a piece of music and bind it together as a ballad." In his opera adaptation of Wilde's play, the backbone of Richard Strauss' opulent setting is a series of densely woven leitmotifs, which elaborate the relationship between Herodias' daughter and the prophet Jochanaan. In Gabriele Lavia's triumphant 2010 Bologna production, the linking of Salome's naive insouciance, sexual obsession and cruelty as portrayed by Erika Sunnegardh is also subtly reflected in the scenic representation. Under the musical direction of internationally acclaimed conductor Nicola Luisotti, the stellar cast of experienced singers including Mark S. Doss as Jochanaan, Robert Brubaker as Herodes and Dalia Schaechter as Herodias give an energetic performance of Strauss' early masterpiece
