Falstaff : (highlights) by Giuseppe Verdi( )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in Italian and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series introduces, in words and music, the plot and background of the major operas. Using the principal themes and arias, taken from the Naxos recording of the complete work, Thomson Smillie is informative yet entertaining, enabling the listener to get more from this remarkable art form. Verdi's Falstaff repays careful study with real pleasure. It is opera's happiest irony that the great Italian master should cap a career -- distinguished for its blood-and-thunder tragic masterpieces -- with the greatest comic opera in the Italian repertory. The genius of Shakespeare is harnessed (in a miracle of compression) by master-librettist Boito to give the eighty-year-old Verdi a superb libretto, on which he lavished more wonderful tunes than most composers manage in a lifetime. Falstaff is the last great Italian comic opera and a worthy end to the tradition

La Didone by Pier Francesco Cavalli( Visual )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the earliest operas deserving of the name, Didone is our first surviving musical version of the famous episode in Virgil's Aeneid where the Trojan hero loves and then cruelly leaves the noble Dido. Cavalli learnt at the feet of Monteverdi, and his dramatic transformation of the story is all the more expressive for its intimacy, worthy of the examples set by his master."--Container

Cosi Fan Tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Italian and held by 34 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
