Tobias and the angel by Jonathan Dove( )

10 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

10 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opéra en deux actes réalisé par le North Opera, créé au Leeds Grand Theatre, le 21 décembre 2007, l'ouvrage sert incontestablement le mythe de Collodi: acteurs fins et vivants, orchestre précis, mordant, lyrique, mise en scène et décors très efficaces. Destiné d'abord aux enfants, le spectacle ne laisse rien dans l'ombre: il est fidèle à l'âpreté parfois terrifiante (et magique) du conte originel
