This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
The nutcracker ( visu )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
The chief attraction of this 1968 adaptation is Rudolf Nureyev, who had defected to the West in 1961. This is his adaptation of the work, and the dancing is very classical, the costumes sumptuous, and the orchestra sparkling. The production made ballerina Merle Park a star. At a Christmas party, Clara is presented with the elegant Nutcracker prince by her doting godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. The Nutcracker is broken and Clara is devastated. That night, Clara dreams about the Nutcracker prince: he comes to life, fights off a Rat King and his minions, and takes her to his kingdom
