Mustapha Hasnaoui's documentary offers an inside look into the making of Margaret Garner, an opera based upon Toni Morrison's novel, Beloved. Margaret Garner, a slave separated from her husband by a white slave-owner, was forced to become his mistress. In 1856, she fled from Kentucky with her family to Ohio where she killed her two little girls to prevent them from being enslaved. Through interviews with cast members, Hasnaoui presents the influence this opera has had on issues of race in the present day, as well as the way in which a disturbing part of history is transformed into art

The Singing City : Mounting Parsifal at the Stuttgart Opera( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmed with rare behind-the-scenes access at Germany's renowned Stuttgart State Opera, this program uses director Calixto Bieito's staging of Wagner's Parsifal to explore the dazzling and complex universe of a major operatic production. The challenges of directing, conducting, rehearsing, and dialect coaching (baritone Gregg Baker, as Amfortas, speaks no German) are all shown in fascinating detail. Viewers also learn about the working lives of craftspeople and stage technicians as they conceive, build, and install a dark cityscape of visually stunning elements-including sets, props, costumes, and the ever-present stage blood that threatens to leak into the orchestra pit. Revealing just how difficult it is to coax a visionary interpretation like Bieito's into concrete and living form, award-winning documentary filmmaker Vadim Jendreyko has crafted his own remarkable story along the way. Contains occasional profanity and nudity associated with theatrical performance. (Portions with English subtitles, 52 minutes) A streaming videorecording
