Farinelli, il castrato by Gérard Corbiau( Visual )

4 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Academy Award-nominated FARINELLI takes us into the world of the world's greatest castrato. A strikingly gifted singer with a range of more than three octaves, Farinelli was given little choice but to sacrifice his manhood in exchange for his art, and as his career was founded on the surgery that would dramatically restrict his off-stage life, his art was in turn hemmed in by his family. Carlo's father declared early on that he should only sing the songs of his brother Riccardo, and while Farinelli's fame gives Riccardo's career a needed boost, the mediocrity of Riccardo's compositions holds Farinelli back. When the singer is given the opportunity to work with the great composer Handel, his brother's jealously and Farinelli's own poorly chosen career alliances stand in his way

Agrippina by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in 1709, Agrippina is an opera seria in three acts on a libretto by Cardinal Vincenzo Grimani. The opera tells the story of Agrippina, the mother of Nero, as she plots the downfall of the Roman Emperor Claudius and the installation of her son as emperor. Grimani's libretto, considered one of the best that Handel set, is full of topical political allusions. Some believe that it reflects the rivalry between Grimani and Pope Clement XI. Jacobs performs the work in its original version
