Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Conspiring together, the siblings induce Siegfried to drink a magic potion to forget Brünnhilde, then retrieve her that she may marry Günther. This deed accomplished, Hagen then murders Siegfried during a hunt. When Brünnhilde sacrifices herself upon Siegfried's pyre, Hagen attempts to steal the magic ring, but is thwarted as the waters of the Rhine rise, washing over everything, and the Rhine maidens retrieve their treasure, as Valhalla appears in flames above

Le sacre du printemps ; Le rossignol ; Oedipus Rex by Igor Stravinsky( )

2 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in Russian and Multiple languages and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This triple bill of works by one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, directed by John Dexter and designed by David Hockney, offered Met audiences a rich theatrical experience-beginning with the dramatically gripping ballet Le Sacre du Printemps, choreographed by Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, with Music Director James Levine and the Met Orchestra at their riveting best. The charming fairy tale Le Rossignol (The Nightingale) features Gianna Rolandi as the title character, whose singing is so enchanting that it keeps even Death (Jean Kraft) from the ailing Emperor (Morley Meredith). The searing Oedipus Rex retells the Greek myth in stark but emotional terms. William Lewis is the tragically ill-fated title hero who unknowingly murders his father and marries his mother, Jocasta (Florence Quivar). Franz Mazura sings the roles of Creon and the Messenger, and Anthony Dowell is the Speaker
