Spring awakening by Frank Wedekind( Book )

242 editions published between 1901 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 2,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind's play Spring Awakening closed after one night in New York in 1917 amid public outrage and charges of obscenity. The play's content was radical indeed: teenage sex, suicide, abortion, masturbation, sadomasochism. But even more radical was the unsentimental and brutally authentic comedy with which Wedekind treated it. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of four teenagers, Melchior, Moritz, Wendla, and Hansy, who, in their painfully funny contradictions - they are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all - remain fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture. Thanks to the acclaimed novelist Jonathan Franzen, we now have a definitive new translation, one unique in capturing the bizarre comic spirit that animates every scene of this classic play."--Jacket

Unterm Novembermond auf dem Kirchhof, zwischen zwei Toten, zwei Opfern der Furcht vor der Schande bei diesem erstickenden Ende bleibt es in Wedekinds Fruehlings Erwachen nicht: es erscheint der "Vermummte Herr", der den Melchior zum Leben verfuehren will, und es gelingt ihm. Er ist das Leben mit all seinen abenteuerlichen

Der Marquis von Keith : Schauspiel in fünf Aufzügen by Frank Wedekind( Book )

87 editions published between 1907 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der Bühnenklassiker erstmals als kommentierte Studienausgabe: gesellschaftskritisch, komisch und nach wie vor aktuell. Als sein »gedankenreichstes Werk«, das Beste, was er geschrieben habe, hat Frank Wedekind sein Hochstaplerstück »Der Marquis von Keith« bezeichnet. Die Geschichte um Kunst und Kommerz, Sein und Schein, Tausch und Täuschung, aber auch um das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen disparaten Haltungen, um die Frage nach Askese oder Lebensgenuss bildet den Auftakt der Reihe »Frank Wedekind - Werke in Einzelbänden«. Dieses unter abenteuerlichen Umständen entstandene und zuerst 1900 unter dem Titel »Münchner Scenen« gedruckte Stück stieß bei den Zeitgenossen zunächst auf Unverständnis. Aufgrund seiner rasanten Dialoge und der raffinierten Mischung aus burlesker Komik und bitterem Ernst zählt das Stück aber mittlerweile zu den Klassikern der Moderne und amüsiert das Publikum noch heute."--Provided by publisher

Lulu by Alban Berg( Recording )

Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance
