2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Central to the plot is the story of three men, perhaps three brothers, and the family entanglements bound up with their wives and children. One of the men commits suicide, after which the action onstage follows the attempts of the survivors to come to terms with what has happened. The burial is a fixed point and is followed by the events that led up to it and then by the question: "What comes next?" This approach gives concrete expression to a recurrent theme in Messiah: the category of human doubt. The abstract, philosophical layer of the score, the voice of God and the inner voices of the characters are taken by the chorus, which is choreographically involved in the action, as is the aforementioned dancer, who embodies not only the sufferings of Christ but also the life of the suicide victim after he has killed himself. Mention should also be made of a figure described as a "sign language performer", who accompanies the orchestral introduction, for example."--Booklet

Lucio Silla documentary : Salzburg Festival 2006 : an hour with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, 1756-1791( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2006, the Mozart22 project took place in honor of the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth. It was a major project to recreate the twenty-two operas and oratorios composed by Mozart. This documentary goes behind the scenes of the production of Ascanio in Alba at that time. The Salzburg Festival of 2006 gathered the best specialists of the Mozart repertoire - singers, conductors and directors - to interpret this unique selection of works. "I see it as a kind of political thriller, the story of a plot against an inhuman regime. [...] Lucio Silla is, in my opinion, one of the few truly political pieces by Mozart."
