Pikovaia dama = The queen of spades : opera in three acts( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in Russian and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discover the version of Tchaikovsky's The Queen of Spades directed by Gilbert Deflo at the Liceu de Barcelona in 2010 with Misha Didyk, Ludovic Tézier and Ewa Podles. Michael Boder conducts the Symphony Orchestra of the Gran Teatre del Liceu. The Queen of Spades is an opera in three acts composed by Tchaikovsky in 1890, based on the libretto by Modest Tchaikovsky, the composer's brother. The opera is very loosely inspired by Pushkin's short story of the same name. The story unfolds in Saint Petersburg at the end of the 18th century. Hermann is no longer Pushkin's cynical and grotesque character, but a great romantic hero madly in love with Lisa -- and with gambling ... The Tchaikovsky brothers were criticised for betraying the spirit of Pushkin's work. They did, however, create a tremendous, surprisingly complex hero. Gilbert Deflo's interpretation of the piece has been widely praised. The decor and costumes accurately recreate an 18th-century atmosphere. Ostentatious luxury emanates from the bedroom, the games room and the ballroom, with its many chandeliers and colonnades. This Catalan production's vocal distribution includes the tenor Misha Didyk in the role of Hermann -- he plays a cold and cynical character, similar to Pushkin's original Hermann. In the role of Lisa, Emily Magee employs her soprano voice with ease. The chorus and dancers play a crucial part in the staging and contribute to a spectacular display of costumes
Boulevard solitude : lyric drama in seven scenes by Hans Werner Henze( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henze's first work of real note, the opera stands out for its use of strong jazz influence from a composer who had hitherto been associated with twelve tone technique. The piece is a reworking of the Manon Lescaut story, already adapted operatically by Auber, Massenet and Puccini, into a contemporary framework."--Wikipedia
