Swan lake by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( Visual )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Swan Lake is regarded as one of the greatest works in the art of ballet. The magic of Tchaikovsky's music, embodying the love of Prince Siegfried for the enchanted Swan Queen, has greatly contributed to making this the best-loved of all classical ballets ... Prince Siegfried celebrates his twenty-first birthday; his mother tells him it is time to marry, but he prefers to go hunting. Alone, by a lakeside, he sees a swan who turns to human form. She is an enchanted princess who can be saved only by ture love. He promises this, but is tricked by the wicked magician who disguises his own daughter as the swan-maiden"--Container

The meeting of Siegfried with the dragon and with Brünnhilde
Rodelinda by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth Handel opera to enter the Met repertoire, Rodelinda stars Renée Fleming in the title role of the Queen of Lombardy and grieving widow of King Bertarido (countertenor Andreas Scholl), who furiously rejects marriage to Grimoaldo (tenor Kobie van Rensburg), the usurper of her late husband's throne. Plot complications come thick and fast, among them the revelation that Bertarido is alive, with the characters' emotions exquisitely expressed in Handel's alternately lyrical and virtuosic arias. The stellar cast also includes Stephanie Blythe and John Relyea. Conductor Patrick Summers leads this thrilling performance

Itzhak Perlman, violin by Itzhak Perlman( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great Israeli-born violinist Itzhak Perlman has already left a huge number of sound recordings of his interpretations, but it adds an extra dimension to be able to watch him execute, for instance, the brilliant spiccato bowing in Saint-Saens's Introduction et rondo capriccioso. A master of the French style through his teacher Ivan Galamian, Perlman at 25 is seen in the first full flush of his talent. Ten years later the mature soloist shows his total command of the modern Russian style of Prokofiev, at a BBC Symphony Orchestra golden jubilee concert, and the bitter-sweet romanticism of Elgar's massive, virtuosic concerto."--Container
