The mikado by Arthur Sullivan( Visual )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The irrepressible Eric Idle (Monty Python's Flying Circus) teams up with the English National Opera in this hilarious performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's beloved comic opera, The Mikado. This rollicking version of Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular tale relocates the action from ancient Japan to a 1920s English seaside resort. Here the rule of the Mikado is absolute--and often prone to whimsy. Ko-Ko (Eric Idle) is sentenced to death for the crime of flirting, but in a strange turn of events is instead named "Lord High Executioner." A delightful farce ensues as Ko-Ko can't behead anyone without first cutting off his own head. But by the second act, the Mikado demands an execution and Ko-Ko must delicately sing and dance his way around a messy situation involving the Mikado's son and his secret love Yum Yum

The Lesley Garrett Show. notes from Seville( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few European cities have a musical tradition as alive as this one. Like Carmen, Lesley is stirring Spanish hearts in Seville. Here the very air resonates with warm Latin rhythms and the clack of castanets, while all opera lovers know that its dark side streets are throbbing with passion and violence. Lesley discovers the mysteries of the flamenco as she learns this most seductive of dances, and finds Moorish music in the bars and in the city, where Rossini's set his popular opera, The Barber Of Seville. Flamenco master and heart-throb Joaquin Cortes shows off his sensual style, and there is music from Verdi's Il Trovatore, Sorozabal's La Taberna Del Puerto and, of course, Bizet's Carmen. The exciting Russian violinist Maxim Vengerov is also among the guest stars
The Lesley Garrett Show. notes from New York( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lesley Garrett takes a trip to New York to bring a little Christmas magic to a city that has recently faced the most traumatic period in its history. New York has long been the capital of Christmas, with kitsch toys and decorations, ice skating at the Rockefeller Center and a mad rush around FAO Schwarz for the biggest and best toys. But after September 11, the mood has been more sombre. Now the people of the Big Apple are planning to show their undaunted spirit with a really capital Christmas. The music programme combines a new take on traditional festive fare alongside American music and guests, reflecting the enduring optimism of that great city. The music ranges from Bernstein to Handel, and from Duke Ellington to Billy Joel, not forgetting seasonal carols as Lesley wanders the wide sidewalks of the city, asking New Yorkers for their favourite Christmas song and joining in many spirited renditions
The Lesley Garrett Show. notes from Another World( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final show conjures up plenty of magic with a range of music on that theme. Lesley is joined by some of the biggest names from the musicals: Michael Ball plays the Phantom Of The Opera to Lesley's Christine, while Jesus Christ Superstar Steve Balsamo sings the Eagles' Witchy Woman. The world of opera is represented by Willard White, who joins in with Voici Des Roses from Berlioz's magnificent The Damnation Of Faust, and Polish singer Katarzyna Dondalska hits the high notes as the Queen Of The Night from Mozart's Magic Flute. Lesley's solo spots include such popular classics as Somewhere Over The Rainbow, Magic Moments and Rusalska's Song To The Moon plus a whistle-stop, flying-carpet tour of the globe singing A Whole New World from Disney's Aladdin. And adding grace to the whole, the Birmingham Royal Ballet perform their comic Shakespeare Suite
