Zaide by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zaide, the unfinished opera by Mozart, in a production directed by Peter Sellars which was the focus of controversy at the Aix-en-Provence festival. In 2008, the Aix-en-Provence Festival created a surprise by opening its sixtieth edition with Zaide, the unfinished opera written by Mozart at 23 and reinterpreted by the American director Peter Sellars. Composed in 1780, two years before The Abduction from the Seraglio, Zaide contains melodies of incredible inventiveness. The work lacks an overture, a finale and many of the spoken dialogues. Missing elements that allow Sellars to build a consistency, his own consistency: the work becomes a manifesto against slavery. Sellars' vision provoked a scandal, as it had previously disturbed audiences in Vienna and London, but the Cour de l'Archevêché has experienced plenty of scandals. The film proposed here is Sellars' spectacle presented in Aix-en-Provence. It features the same singers, Russel Thomas (Sultan Soliman), Ekaterina Lekhina (Zaide) and Sean Panikar (Gomatz), the same conductor and the same formation (Louis Langrée and the Salzburg Camerata) who, through their commitment, do justice to the work while respecting Sellars' dramaturgy. The best way of forming one's own opinion is to look at this version of Zaide. Even though, as the assistant director aptly puts it, "You probably won't share this vision, you may be shocked or even remain indifferent to our contemporary approach, however, it is a gift and we hope that you will greet it with open arms and open minds."

La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

8 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sivadier's production is staged in the open air, in Aix-en-Provence's exquisite Théâtre de l'Archevêché with its huge spiral staircases, medieval arches and 18th-century wings. The stage decor is minimal, the simple costumes evoke the 1940s or 1950s, and the prime focus is on intense characterization

3 editions published in 2009 and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hamlet by Ambroise Thomas( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After over a century out of the Met's repertoire, audiences were thrilled to discover just what a sensational evening in the theater Thomas's Hamlet can be. Simon Keenlyside's riveting performance as the tortured Prince of Denmark in Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser's starkly brooding production had critics raving that Keenlyside's superb singing, coupled with his deftly delineated three-dimensional Hamlet, was one of the greatest examples of operatic drama of our time. The cast includes Marlis Petersen as the long suffering Ophélie, who brilliantly shows why her mad scene is so justly famous, along with Jennifer Larmore and James Morris as Gertrude and Claudius
