Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don Florestan has been falsely imprisoned for threatening to expose the evil Don Pizarro. While he starves to death with other political prisoners his wife, Leonore tries to find him. She disguises herself as the young man, Fidelio, and wins the confidence of the gaoler, Rocco and his daughter Marzelline. Sir Peter Hall's outstanding 1979 Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Fidelio remains remarkably faithful to the way Beethoven intended the opera to be. The stage directions of the original version -- completed in 1814 after two revisions -- are followed exactly by Sir Peter. Yet he still manages to inject fresh excitement and suspense into Fidelio with John Bury's original lighting and design providing a perfect framework for the drama and conflicts that centre on political intrigue and repression. Elisabeth Soderstrom portrays the courageous Leonore in such a riveting and outstanding performance that alone is worth the whole show
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in Italian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who is the most macho character in all of legend and literature? Could it be Casanova? Or James Bond? Well, my vote would go to Don Juan or, if you prefer, Don Giovanni. Unscrupulous, immoral, and scandalous, his amorous exploits were brought to the operatic stage by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, who was a figure of scandal in his own right. Welcome to Opera Easy's featured opera: Mozart's Don Giovanni," says program host Natalie Choquette
