Tobias and the angel by Jonathan Dove( )

8 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Dove is one of Britain's leading composers of opera. His community opera 'Tobias and the Angel' was premiered in 1999 at Christ Church, Highbury Fields in London and was then taken up by the Young Vic / English Touring Opera in 2005 during the refurbishment of the theatre company's regular venue. It was first performed at the newly re-opened Young Vic in 2006. The masterly libretto by David Lan is based on the Book of Tobit from the biblical Apocrypha. The colourful story of Tobit who is blinded after daring to give a fellow Jew a proper burial, and the ensuing adventures of his son Tobias, particularly appealed to the composer. It is undoubtedly one of Dove's brightest scores, possessing immense appeal and communicative powers. In this premiere recording of the opera the Young Vic production is directed by David Charles Abell

5 editions published in 2013 in Undetermined and English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wenn sich Opernsänger in das Broadway-Musical verlieben, richten sie nicht selten großen Schaden an, indem sie versuchen, das Genre, das nun mal gerade von der nicht-klassischen Stimme lebt und eher im Jazz und Swing seine Wurzeln hat als in der klassischen Operette, zu "adeln", es aus der vermeintlichen Tiefe der U-Musik herauszuholen.Diesen Fehler begeht Diana Damrau nicht. Sie bleibt zwar im Sopranfach, versucht nicht eine soulige oder gar jazzige Musicalstimme zu kreieren, aber sie hebt die Songs nicht ins Opernhafte. Die Sängerin nähert sich dieser Musik oft mit einer (wohlkalkulierten) Naivität. Durch unprätentiöse Geradlinigkeit wirken die Titel meist sauber und durchsichtig, sie zerkaut die Texte nicht, um Nuancen herauszuholen, die gar nicht drinstecken. Und so gelingen ihr fast alle Nummern" (kulturradio.de)

Musical that "tells the story of the 'mad' knight Don Quixote as a play within a play, performed by Cervantes and his fellow prisoners as he awaits a hearing with the Spanish Inquisition."--Wikipedia
