Hartmut Haenchen : the skies over Dresden : the great conductor confides his story( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hartmut Haenchen's incredible story starts in Dresden under the Allied bombs. Yet, neither the bombs nor the Stasi were able to prevent his successful career. The conductor confides about his peculiar journey. On 13 February 1945, the conductor Hartmut Haenchen was nearly two years old when Dresden went up in flames after colossal bombings by the Allies. From a basement window the young Haenchen saw how the skies of his city were on fire. Growing up among the debris he managed to develop his musical talent under the discipline of a strict GDR system. Despite the East German regime's restrictions, Haenchen was granted permission to work with the finest ensembles in the West, including the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Still, the Stasi, the Secret Service, kept a tab on him for many years: a youthful political sin dogged his steps for so long that he was nearly prevented to become the international top conductor he is now. It is not until later that he was allowed to see his Stasi files. To his bewilderment he discovered not only who spied on him at the time, but also the exact moments when he and his girlfriend got onto trams. In 1986, he moved to the Netherlands where he started his "second" career. Soon he became Music Director of both of the Netherlands Philharmonic and De Nederlandse Opera. Particularly renowned for his works by Richard Strauss and Mahler, the Opernwelt called Haenchen " ... undoubtedly one of the great Wagner conductors of our time."

I Puritani (The Puritans) is an opera in three acts by Bellini, based on a libretto by Count Pepoli and first performed at the Italian Theatre in Paris in 1835. The plot takes place in 1659 in England, during the Civil War. In a fortress near Plymouth, Lord Walton is a partisan of Cromwell and wants his daughter, Elvira, to marry Sir Richard Forth, a fellow Cromwell supporter. But Elvira is in love with Lord Talbot, a knight and supporter of the Stuarts. This impossible romance will drive Elvira to madness. The staging by Francisco Negrín evokes a male-dominated world. Es Devlin created the metal scenery, which is an allusion to soldiers' armour, while Louis Désiré put together a combination of historical and more modern costumes. Conductor Giuliano Carella conducts the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest and choirmaster Martin Wright leads the Koor Van De Nederlandse Opera.

Verdi's The Sicilian vespers : Paolo Carignani (conductor), Christof Loy (stage director) - With Barbara Haveman (Hélène), Burkhard Fritz (Henri) and Alejandro Marco-Buhrmester (Guy de Montfort)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This superb version of The Sicilian Vespers was staged by Christof Loy at the Het Muziektheater in Amsterdam in 2010. The performance stars Barbara Haveman, Livia Ághová and Burkhard Fritz, while Paolo Carignani conducts the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest. The Sicilian Vespers is an opera in five acts by Verdi, and was performed for the very first time at the Paris Opera on June 13th 1855 as part of the 1855 Universal Exposition. Although this work followed three of Verdi's biggest successes--Rigoletto, Il Trovatore and La Traviata--The Sicilian Vespers never reached the same level of popularity as its predecessors. Verdi's opera recounts the historic event of the "Sicilian Vespers", when during Easter in 1282 A.D., the Sicilian population rose up against King Charles of Anjou. The staging by Christof Loy modernizes the opera, with armor and other 13th-century props replaced by costumes of different eras. Apart from the red curtain and choirs, the staging consists entirely of videos projected on a screen. The leading vocal roles are sung by Barbara Haveman, Livia Ághová and Burkhard Fritz, accompanied by the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Paolo Carignani
