Moses und Aron by Arnold Schoenberg( Recording )

7 editions published in 1996 in German and Undetermined and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schoenberg's masterpiece in the twelve-tone system he developed was his unfinished opera, a vastly complex work based on a single tone row that it remained a fragment may be essential to its spiritual message, for while Schoenberg never stated it explicitly, it would seem that he left this most ambitious project of his mature style incomplete on purpose

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss's final opera, first seen at the Met in 1998 in this John Cox production, was revived in 2010 for Renée Fleming. One of the world's great Strauss interpreters, she brought a "plush and alluring" voice and "noble phrasing" to her portrayal of the Countess
Wozzeck( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based upon Georg Büchner's 1837 play, Alban Berg's Wozzeck details the harsh existence of the title character, a former soldier in the German army who has to struggle mightily to make a living, even as others around him prosper. This is a portrayal of a man who is tormented and mocked by his superiors until he loses reason

1 edition published in 1986 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Star tenor Plácido Domingo brings romantic ardor and stylish vocalism to the role of Don José, the honest soldier lured to his doom by the free-spirited gypsy of the title, sung by Maria Ewing. Catherine Malfitano is Micaela, the faithful girl from Don José's old life who comes to realize she is unable to save him, and Michael Devlin sings Escamillo, the swaggering bullfighter and Don José's rival for Carmen's affections. James Levine leads the Met's musical forces
Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss( Visual )

1 edition published in 1986 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A sumptuous fantasy out of some grand hotel of the Belle Epoch"--this was one critic's comment when this production of the most Viennese of all operettas opened at the Met. Staged by Vienna's own Otto Schenk (who also does a star turn as the jailer Frosch), with gorgeous sets and costumes by Günther Schneider-Siemssen and Peter J. Hall, it's the essence of a carefree, slightly naughty take on the myth of the Imperial city by the Danube. Of course it helps to have an all-star cast: from Tatiana Troyanos's arch, smoldering Prince Orlofsky to Kiri Te Kanawa's dreamy, elegant Rosalinde to Judith Blegen's pert Adele. No wonder all the men involved are completely smitten--and everybody is having the time of their lives
