Quartet by John Cage( Visual )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 1,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rumor circling the halls is that Beecham House (the home for retired musicians) is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it's a star. Reginald, Wilfred and Cecily are in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean. Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard

"This famous performance of Verdi's romantic tragedy captures one of the most sensational debuts in operatic history.

The death of Klinghoffer by John Adams( Visual )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the 1985 hijacking by Palestinian terrorists of the Mediterranean cruise ship Achille Lauro. Award-winning British film-maker Penny Woolcock, working with the composer, ingeniously reworked the original, using techniques afforded by film to imbue the narrative with realism. While the main action is shot on location in the Mediterranean, actual and recreated archive footage tells the broader story of the characters before and after the hijacking
Capriccio : a conversation piece for music in one act by Richard Strauss( Visual )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in German and English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leading Strauss soprano of our time, Renee Fleming stars in one of her most acclaimed stage roles, the countess in Richard Strauss's Capriccio. Capriccio examines the age old debate of what is superior, music or poetry. In the opera this manifests itself through the widowed Countess struggling to decide between two potential lovers, the composer Flamand or poet Olivier. Her indecision reaches its climax in the famously beautiful final scene, one of Strauss's most passionate soliloquies

An adaptation of the Cinderella story. The story is the familiar fairy tale but with the fairy element left out. In place of the fairy godmother, we have Alidoro, a philosophic person and friend of the Prince. The glass slipper is replaced with a pair of bracelets. One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending
