She stoops to conquer by Oliver Goldsmith( Visual )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Athapascan and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic comedy of manners tells of the clever schemes and comic ruses that unfold one night at a country house. An ambitious step-mother, impassioned sweethearts, a pragmatic father and a pair of star-crossed suitors are sent spinning through a hilarious comedy of errors by one of the great characters of the stage, Tony Lumpkin. In its day, this eighteenth century masterpiece was considered so 'low' that it might never have reached the stage. When it was finally produced, it enjoyed immediate and lasting success, breaking the mould with its satirical swipe at polite society. 518 "This production was first performed on September 12, 2002 at the Oxford Playhouse, and opened at the National Theatre on December 17, 2002. It was recorded at the Theatre Royal, Bath on April 8 & 9, 2003."

In an attic apartment in the Latin Quarter of Paris, a group of young artists are living together in poverty. Their neighbour, the little seamstress Mimi, introduces herself, seeking a light for her candle, when Rodolfo is left alone. They fall in love. At the Café Momus Rodolfo presents Mimi to his friends, while the singer Musetta abandons her elderly rich lover Alcindoro in order to join Marcello. Alcindoro is left to settle the bill for all of them. Time has passed. Mimi has lived with Rodolfo, but they quarrel, because of his apparent jealousy. He has planned to leave her, as we learn in a scene set on a cold winter morning by the city gates. Musetta, a contrast in character to the gentle Mimi, later returns to the attic apartment of the four young men, bringing with her the dying Mimi, whom they now try to comfort, but in vain, as she dies before their eyes of the consumption that has racked her

Cinderella by Gioacchino Rossini( Visual )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in Italian and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Glyndebourne Festival's new production for Gioachino Rossini's opera in 2005: now a classic! This is the story of Cinderella, of course, but also the story of Beauty And The Beast. In La Cenerentola, the fairy tales feed the story, although no fairy element remains. No glass slipper, no good fairy, no coach ... However, it is the true Cinderella, whom her stepfather ignores, and her stepsisters despise. She spends her time cleaning up the house in which she barely lives, and hopes one day she can escape through a love which would go beyond social status. Angelina's dream is not vain because, just as in Beauty And The Beast, the beauty of the heart is the first virtue, and the only one which can be victorious. Luckily, as ever in the opera buffa, the good wins over the bad. Maxim Mironov (Prince Ramiro) and Ruxandra Donose (Angelina, called "La Cenerentola"), are gathered on the Glyndebourne Festival's stage. The luxurious costumes by Moritz Junge and the excellent stage direction by Peter Hall made this production a highly successful one: since 2005, a few revivals of the performance have been given, notably at the Glyndebourne Festival itself (it appears in the 2012 programme of the festival). Here, under the baton of Vladimir Jurowski (music director of the festival since 2001), the London Philharmonic Orchestra gives a unique and very Rossini-like energy to the performance
