Les enchanteresses by Jean Starobinski( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in French and Italian and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En s'alliant à la musique, en faisant appel aux fables anciennes et aux conventions du théâtre, la poésie a inventé un nouvel espace de fiction : l'opéra. Toutes les figures du désir et de l'égarement passionnel peuvent y être jouées et déjouées. Toutes les autorités aussi peuvent y être mises en péril. Les enchanteresses tiennent sous leur domination les héros qu'elles ont dévoyés. Mais leur triomphe ne dure pas. Elles sont les incarnations de l'art qui multiplie les plaisirs et qui sait aussi combien sa souveraineté est précaire. L'air d'opéra, qui soulève tant de passions, apparaît bien comme le lieu des transferts du sacré à l'expérience la plus intime de soi, parfois aussi aux appartenances nationales. Or à la sacralisation de l'art correspond en retour une esthétisation du religieux, phénomène complexe qui ne cesse de se manifester sous nos yeux, avec des conséquences parfois inquiétantes. Les lecteurs sentiront que les enjeux esthétiques évoqués dans ce livre intéressent de près l'évolution des sociétés modernes " avancées "

"Focuses mainly on the fate of a Jewish family after the Anschluss ... Two brothers, Joseph and Robert Schuster, were forced into exile in 1938 and through friendly colleagues in England received appointments at Oxford and Cambride as professors of literatire and history respectively. Joseph Schuster's wife, two daughters, and son accompanied him. After the war the family returned to Austria, where the brothers resumed teaching at the University of Vienna. Prior to the beginning of the play, Joseph Schuster jumps to his death from the apartment window facing the Heldenplatz [Heroes Square]. This event serves as a catalyst for the play, which examines his life and character seeking the reasons for his suicde."--Donald G. Daviau, 34-35
Ritter, Dene, Voss by Thomas Bernhard( Visual )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ritter, Dene, Voss involves the Worringer sisters--both Viennese actresses--preparing for their brother's return from the Steinhof mental institution in Vienna, where he has been a patient for some time. Dene is the driving force behind an attempt at reintegrating him into family life while Ritter remains skeptical. When Voss, a tormented genius (loosely based on last century's great, idiosyncratic philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein), finally appears, it becomes clear that he never planned to stay for good. The play takes place before, during, and after lunch, unfolding through caustic dialogue in this 'misanthropic comedy.'"

Set in a hunting lodge. "The owner of the estate is an ailing World War II general who lost an arm in the Battle of Stalingrad.

The general is out hunting in the company of high-ranking ministers, a young prince employed as the gamekeeper, and his princess. The general's wife plays cards with a young writer. The writer agonizes about nature, human and otherwise." Gitta Honneger, p. 123

Among the masterpieces of world literature, this great verse drama by Norway's famed playwright humorously yet profoundly explores the virtues, vices, and follies common to all humanity as it follows the roguish life of a charming but arrogant young man.

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

3 editions published in 2006 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
