Don Giovanni : dramma giocoso by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Staged by acclaimed director Francesca Zambello and conducted by legendary Mozart authority Sir Charles Mackerras, this 2008 production of Don Giovanni never shies from the work's inherent passion and spectacle. Shadows infuse the set through much of the performance (while a massive Madonna, fastened to a central urban façade, presides overhead), but the ominous chiaroscuro eventually gives way to the full force of the ensemble and an unforgettable pyrotechnic climax. The international cast includes renowned British baritone Simon Keenlyside in the title role, as well as Russian soprano Marina Poplavskaya as Donna Anna and Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas as Don Ottavio."--Container

"La Traviata, one of the world's best-loved romantic operas, is performed under the starts on a floating, mirrored stage on Sydney Harbour, with the city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge acting as a stunning backdrop. Giuseppe Verdi's captivating music is performed with the orchestra concealed in a studio beneath the stage to ensure the finest amplified sound combines with the superlative singing of the cast. Emma Matthews thrills as the courtesan Violetta who, against her better judgement, falls in love with Alfredo, the dazzling Italian tenor Gianluca Terranova. But their relationship is doomed on two counts: Violetta's illness, and society's moral views of a courtesan's place within their world. With a colossal, glittering Swarovski chandelier illuminating the stage and fireworks embellishing the night-sky this is a La Traviata without equal"--Container
