The rake's progress by Igor Stravinsky( Visual )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manon by Jules Massenet( Recording )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Massenet had a special gift for creating beguiling female characters that audiences can never get enough of--and that great sopranos long to perform. For many opera lovers, the enchanting but destructive Manon counts among his greatest achievements. Certainly Renée Fleming in the title role gives a dazzling tour de force: she's equally at home with Manon's spectacular coloratura singing and the gripping, overwhelming passion the character has for Des Grieux (Massimo Giordano)

Jenůfa( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in Czech and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A splendid Jenůfa, one of Janáček's best-known operas, here directed for stage by Alvis Hermanis and conducted by Ludovic Morlot at La Monnaie / Die Munt in Brussels. Premiered in Brno in 1904, Jenůfa was written after a play by Gabriela Preissová. It is a turning point in Janáček's stylisitic evolution: breaking off with the German operatic tradition, Janáček drew his inspiration from the natural inflexions of the spoken language, as well as from the rhythms and harmonies of the Czech folk repertoire. A genuine pioneer in the scientific study of the popular legacy, even before Zoltán Kodály and Béla Bartók, Leoš Janáček integrated in his own language the essence of the traditional music, without falling into pastiche or mere quotation. The particularity of his style lies in an extremely individual manner, as well as in the descriptive abilities of his musical language: popular reminiscences evoke a social frame, while the harshness of the orchestra depicts a greedy and brutal society. Indeed, Jenůfa bears witness of the social violence within a small village in Moravia. Two brothers, Števa et Laca, ruin Jenůfa's life because of their crual and irresponsible behaviour. The former has seduced and abandoned the young woman, after making her pregnant. The latter, in love with Jenůfa, disfigures the young woman's face with his knife out of jealousy. The birth of the young child does not make anything better. Števa still refuses to take responsibility for the consequences of his actions. Laca agrees to marry Jenůfa, though he does not like the idea of raising his brother's child. In order to comfort him, Kostelnička, Jenůfa's adoptive mother, tells him that the child is dead. A lie which leads to a sinister infanticide ... Jenůfa is not only a work that depicts the violence of a human drama stemming from the main characters' selfishness and the fear of a social opprobrium. It also bears witness of the composer's own distress at the time of composition, when he saw his daughter die from typhus. "I would bind Jenůfa with the black ribbon of the long illness, pain and sighing of my daughter Olga and my little boy Vladimir." Next to la Monnaie's chief conductor Ludovic Morlot, the Latvian stage director and actor Alvis Hermanis, one of the leading figures on the European contemporary scene, here makes his début at la Monnaie. This opera was first broadcast on medici.tv in January 2014 and is now part of the medici.tv catalogue, available by subscription

Dvořák's Rusalka : Ádám Fischer, Stefan Herheim - With Myrtò Papatanasiu (Rusalka) and Pavel Černoch (Prince)( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a fairytale by Karel Jaromír Erben reminiscent of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid and Friedrich de la Motte-Fouqué'sUndine, Dvořák's second-to-last opera Rusalka tells the story of an impossible love between the water nymph Rusalka and a young Prince. Anyone who knows anything about classical music knows Dvořák's legendary symphonic works (above all his New World Symphony). Less known are the Czech composer's ten operas, with the most internationally successful among them being Rusalka. The three-act opera began life as a stand-alone libretto written by Czech author and poet Jaroslav Kvapil. When shown the libretto by the director of the Prague National Theater--an institution at that time seeking to develop Czech national identity under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian empire-- Dvořák was immediately enthusiastic, and set about composing a work whose folkloric ambience and use of the Czech language have made it a Czech national treasure. Conductor Adam Fisher and stage director Stefan Herheim's striking and wide-acclaimed 2012 production presented this 'lyrical fairytale' at Belgium's La Monnaie Opera House. Here the work's fairy tale elements are transformed into a psychoanalytical study of male fantasies and female archetypes, starring Greek soprano Myrto Papatanasiu as Rusalka and Pavel Cernoch as a handsomely lyrical Prince. Synopsis The stubborn Rusalka asks the sorceress Ježibaba to help her win the heart of a young Prince who she has often seen bathing in her lake's waters. The sorceress accepts, but with one condition: the nymph will lose her voice and, if rejected, she will never be able to return to her watery homeland and her love will die. At first, the Prince brings the unusual creature home with him, and prepares to marry her, but soon shows himself to be unfaithful, and their happiness and their lives unravel
