The mikado ( visu )
3 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 402 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

I vespri siciliani [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( file )
6 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 306 libraries worldwide
Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
