First seen at La Monnaie in Brussels in May 1998, this production of Monteverdi's L'Orfeo has become an operatic classic in a few short years.

Maya Plisetskaya : diva of dance( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maya Plisetskaya was born in Moscow in 1925 and studied at the Bolshoi Theatre Ballet School, becoming a principal dancer with the Bolshoi on graduating in 1943. She became prima ballerina in 1962, and after being excluded for political reasons many years from tours to the West, she was finally in 1959 allowed to join the American tour with the Bolshoi. She soon gained recognition as one of the world's foremost ballerinas, combining flawless technique with a sensitivity to emotional nuance and becoming the first to truly understand how to combine outstanding dance skills with dramatic expression. This documentary features footage of her greatest successes as a ballerina together with an interview in which Plisetskaya describes her life as a dancer, from Stalin to perestroika, giving an insight into the life of an artist in this extraordinary chapter of Russian history
The rake's progress( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fall and redemption in an outstanding production of The Rake's progress by Robert Lepage. Tom Rakewell, a young and penniless Englishman, is in love with Anne Trulove. A stranger, who announces himself as Nick Shadow, suddenly arrives with the news that an unknown uncle of Tom's has died and left him a fortune. Tom must go at once to London to take over his uncle's estate. Shadow, hired as Tom's servant, soon debauches the young man and leads him into London's brothels. Having no news from her lover, Anne leaves her father's house for London, determined to find him. She soon discovers that he got married with the eccentric Baba the Turk. Under the harmful influence of Nick Shadow, Tom's financial bubble has burst, bringing ruin to himself and to countless innocent investors in his scheme. A year and a day have passed since Shadow entered Tom's service. He now claims his wages: Tom's soul. Drawing their inspiration from Faust and a series of eight engravings by William Hogarth, Stravinsky and Wystan Hugh Auden offer us a neo classical masterwork reminding of Mozart's operas. But the Rake's progress is first and foremost and moral fable revealing the frailty of our will in front of worldly and shallow temptations. Without any condemnation however, the authors depict the subtle portrait of a young man more weak and naive than truly guilty. Set in the United States of the 50's, Robert Lepage's production casts Andrew Kennedy and Laura Claycomb, bringing brilliantly to life Tom Rakewell's vulnerability and the steadfastness of Anne Trulove
