In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. Alone later that day, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Almaviva chases Cherubino away and sends his wife, who he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he follows. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon64533ocn047358436visu19880.50Britten, BenjaminBilly Budd an operaDramaTelevision adaptationsFilm adaptationsTelevision programsDramatizes the moral dilemma of Captain Vere when, in accordance with Admiralty regulations, he must demand the court martial to sentence to death by hanging the innocent seaman who was provoked to strike and kill the villainous master-at-arms59629ocn056384733visu19870.37Mozart, Wolfgang AmadeusDon Giovanni dramma giocosoInterviewsDramaTelevision adaptationsFilm adaptationsOutstanding RAI television archive recording of the opera performance of Da Ponte's tale of lust and subversion from the Teatro alla Scala+-+64176553253245731ocn059760826visu20050.24Bernstein, LeonardLeonard Bernstein's Candide a comic operetta in two actsDramaConcert television programsTelevision programsBased on Voltaire's tale of an innocent young man's journey through a life filled with colorful characters and unexpected life lessons54222ocn011110924rcrd19830.37Rossini, GioacchinoIl barbiere di SivigliaMusical settingsDramaThe story involves Rosina who is kept under lock and key by her guardian, Dr. Bartolo, who intends to marry her.

Wetzlar, near Frankfurt, 1780s. Though it is July, the widowed Bailiff teaches his younger children a Christmas carol in the garden of their house. Their progress is watched with amusement by two neighbors, Schmidt and Johann. They ask for Charlotte, the eldest daughter, who is engaged to Albert. In his absence, the Bailiff tells them, she will be escorted to the local ball that night by a young visiting poet, Werther, whom they find uncongenial. As the friends go off to supper and the Bailiff goes into the house, Werther arrives. He rhapsodizes on the beauty of the evening and watches unseen as Charlotte cuts bread and butter for the children's supper. When the party has left for the ball and the Bailiff has gone to join his friends at the tavern, Albert returns unexpectedly. Disappointed at not finding Charlotte, he promises her sister Sophie he will return in the morning. As the moon rises, Werther and Charlotte return. He has fallen in love with her, but his declaration is cut short when the Bailiff passes by, observing that Albert has returned. Despite his despair, Werther urges Charlotte not to break her promise to marry Albert. ACT II. Three months later, Charlotte and Albert, now married, walk contentedly across the town square on their way to church, followed by Werther. Albert tries to comfort the youth, and Sophie also attempts to cheer him up, but when Charlotte comes out of the church, he speaks of their first meeting; disturbed, she tells him he must leave Wetzlar until Christmas. Werther contemplates suicide, and when Sophie interrupts him, he rushes away. As Charlotte consoles the tearful girl, Albert realizes that Werther must be in love with his wife. ACT III. Alone at home on Christmas Eve, Charlotte rereads the dejected letters written to her by Werther. While she prays for strength, he suddenly appears. Charlotte tries to remain calm and asks him to read to her from his translation of Ossian. Werther chooses a passage where the poet foresees his own death, and when Charlotte begs him to stop, he realizes she returns his love. But she runs from his embrace with a final farewell, and Werther leaves, resolved to die. Albert enters, surprised to find Charlotte distraught, and when a message arrives from Werther asking to borrow Albert's pistols, her reaction convinces him of her love for Werther. He makes her give the pistols to the servant herself, but when Albert has gone she hurries off, praying she may reach Werther in time. ACT IV. Charlotte arrives at Werther's quarters to find him mortally wounded. She declares her love, and he begs forgiveness. As he dies, the voices of the children outside are heard singing their Christmas carol32716ocn012803340rcrd19830.35Britten, BenjaminWar requiem op. 66Musical settingsMusic32027ocn011705962rcrd19830.37Mozart, Wolfgang AmadeusDon GiovanniMusicDramaOperasSchwarzkopf samlingen3143ocn032074766rcrd19940.28Sullivan, ArthurH.M.S.
