"This is the true saga of the anti-Hitler German Army officers' bomb plot of July 20, 1944 that almost killed Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler, and thus very nearly changed the course of World War II ... [In contrast to the reasons behind the plot given in the 2008 Hollywood feature Valkyrie, this film] reveals instead that it was to stop the loss of German lives and the destruction of Germany, and also not to continue the war to a successful conclusion. Thus, it is a more historically accurate film ... Much of the dialogue is lifted straight from historical records."--Container

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1995 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
Geschlossene Gesellschaft by Jean-Paul Sartre( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Sommer 2010 beherrschte der Missbrauch an der Odenwaldschule die deutschen Medien und Feuilletons. Es schien, als ob die deutsche Öffentlichkeit aufarbeiten wollte, was sie elf Jahre lang versäumt hatte: Dem nachzuforschen, was seit November 1999 durch einen Artikel in der Frankfurter Rundschau bekannt war. Niemand stellte sich damals der Frage, weshalb gerade an der Heppenheimer Vorzeigeschule Lehrer über Jahrzehnte hinweg Schüler missbrauchen konnten, weshalb so viele davon wussten und sich trotzdem nichts änderte. Mittlerweile weiß man von mindestens 132 Missbrauchsfällen an der Odenwaldschule seit 1969. Die Dunkelziffer liegt weit darüber, weil viele Betroffene bis heute nicht darüber sprechen können oder wollen. Zum ersten Mal beantworten Hauptverantwortliche für die sogenannte "Vertuschung" von 1998/99 vor der Kamera diese Fragen. Betroffene erzählen ihre Geschichte. Altschüler, die als Jugendliche Zeugen des Missbrauchs wurden, berichten, warum sie 30 Jahre lang schwiegen. GESCHLOSSENE GESELLSCHAFT ist ein Film über menschliches Versagen und das kolossale Scheitern am eigenen Ideal. (Quelle: www.goodmovies.de)

Die Geschichte vom Soldaten = The soldier's tale = Histoire du soldat by Igor Stravinsky( Recording )

3 editions published in 1975 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Schweizer Exil, wo er nach der russischen Revolution Zuflucht gesucht hatte, wollte Strawinski ein Musiktheater schreiben, das von einer großen Opernbühne unabhängig war und auch auf einer Wanderbühne aufgeführt werden konnte. So entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schriftsteller Charles F. Ramuz nach einem Märchen aus der russischen Volksdichtung die Geschichte vom Soldaten, der seine Geige (seine Seele) dem Teufel verkauft hat, sie in der Liebe zu einer Prinzessin beinahe wieder findet und doch vom Teufel geholt wird, weil er alles haben will. Das Werk, eines der brillantesten des Komponisten, wird vom Merlin-Ensemble kongenial interpretiert. "Alle Rollen des Stücks - Soldat, Teufel, Prinzessin, Erzähler - werden von der hinreißenden Lore Brunner gesprochen, mit mundartlichen Einfärbungen, in perfekter Abstimmung auf die Musik ... Lore Brunner ... spricht ein Märchen für Erwachsene und verzaubert sie im Verbund mit der Musik zu Kindern"
