1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Schiller's play The Robbers, I masnadieri was commissioned by Her Majesty's Theatre in London, where it was first performed in 1847, conducted by the composer. Once again Verdi was fascinated by the idea of giving musical expression to the eerie and earthy elements in his source. No wonder, then, that the work had many detractors among critics but was a popular success with its audiences
Salome by Richard Strauss( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oscar Wilde describes his Salome as containing "refrains whose recurring motifs make it so like a piece of music and bind it together as a ballad." In his opera adaptation of Wilde's play, the backbone of Richard Strauss' opulent setting is a series of densely woven leitmotifs, which elaborate the relationship between Herodias' daughter and the prophet Jochanaan. In Gabriele Lavia's triumphant 2010 Bologna production, the linking of Salome's naive insouciance, sexual obsession and cruelty as portrayed by Erika Sunnegardh is also subtly reflected in the scenic representation. Under the musical direction of internationally acclaimed conductor Nicola Luisotti, the stellar cast of experienced singers including Mark S. Doss as Jochanaan, Robert Brubaker as Herodes and Dalia Schaechter as Herodias give an energetic performance of Strauss' early masterpiece

A rediscovery of a little known opera by Verdi, I Masnadieri , through the explanation of the director Gabriele Lavia and music director Nicola Luisotti for this production filmed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples in 2012. While I Masdanieri (literal translation: "The Robbers") is not listed among the great successes of the composer (La Traviata, Il trovatore and Rigoletto), this production at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples brings a new and modern light on this opera that Verdi composed quite young, during his years of hardship" The opera was created in 1847 in London but was poorly received by the public at the time
