La vie parisienne by Jacques Offenbach( Recording )

21 editions published between 1976 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offenbach hielt mit seiner Operette Pariser Leben, deren Stoff ihm das Paris zur Zeit der großen Weltausstellung 1867 lieferte, seinen Zeitgenossen einen Zerrspiegel vor und gab die Stadt der Lebewelt und der tollen Amüsements und ihre fremdländischen Besucher unverhüllt dem Gelächter und dem Spott preis. Die Musik ist reich an köstlichen Einfällen, in origineller Melodik und tänzerischer Rhythmik. - Der gekürzte Live-Mitschnitt der Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz in Berlin unter Sylvain Cambreling, der auch mit für eine neue Textfassung verantwortlich zeichnet, ist eine glänzende Neueinspielung, die hörbar "vom großen Spaß aller an dieser Produktion" kündet (Fono forum 8/99).

When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy

Wagner's Rienzi : Pinchas Steinberg, Jorge Lavelli - With Torsten Kerl (Rienzi) and Marika Schönberg (Irène) - Théâtre du Capitole( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rienzi, one of Wagner's masterpieces, has been a major success at the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse in recent years. For this production, the lyric theatre called upon renowned producer Jordi Lavelli and tenor Torsten Kerl. The Orchestre National du Capitole is conducted by Pinchas Steinberg. Wagner composed Rienzi in Dresden in 1842 after reading the novel Rienzi, the Last of the Roman Tribunes (1835) by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Aside from Richard Wagner and Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Cola di Rienzo, a famous historical figure, also inspired playwrights François Laignelot and Mary Russell Mitford. Rienzo, a young Roman in the 14th century, stood up to corruption in Rome's upper classes, to the point where the people acclaimed him as their new tribune. This incredible journey seems to be designed to be made into a tragedy, a novel or an opera. When Wagner adapted the story of this medieval hero, he was young and still seeking his own style; after Die Feen and Das Liebesverbot, Rienzi is the composer's first opera. Jordi Lavelli's staging is modern, unlike the sumptuous 19th-century grand opera, and the scenery is simple. By limiting himself to the essential, Lavelli restores the force of this long score and puts the singers in the spotlight. In this setting, Torsten Kerl's intelligent singing style shines
