La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in Italian and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Traviata's sumptuous melodies and timeless depiction of doomed love have made the work a favorite of generations of operagoers. In his approach to this classic drama, director Willy Decker sets the action on a nearly bare stage, focusing the audience's full attention on the three main characters. As Violetta, the ailing courtesan desperate to escape her past, soprano Sonya Yoncheva offers a fearless and sympathetic performance from beginning to end. American tenor Michael Fabiano sings with ardent longing as her devoted lover Alfredo, delivering emotionally wrought phrases and ringing top notes. Thomas Hampson brings a burnished baritone to Germont, Alfredo's protective father whose stern demands spell disaster for the young couple. On the podium, maestro Nicola Luisotti leads an electric performance of Verdi's unforgettable score

Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Italian and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An early baroque masterpiece, Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea was inspired by The Annals by Tacitus and celebrates the love of the emperor Nero and the courtesan Poppea. Filmed at the 2008 Glyndebourne Festival, Robert Carsen's production brings together Danielle de Niese, Alice Coote and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under the direction of Emmanuelle Haïm. L'incoronazione di Poppea premiered during carnival season in Venice in 1643, but the story it tells is far from festive. It follows the rise to power of Poppea, the mistress of the emperor Nero, whose unbounded ambition eventually leads her to be crowned as empress at his side. The opera breaks literary traditions, centering its plot around a pair of morally compromised anti-heros, and features strikingly original music, filled with dissonance that strike even today's audiences as modern. In his staging of L'incoronazione di Poppea, director Robert Carsen created a stark world dominated by the visual metaphor of crimson drapes that decorate adulterous bedchambers and cloth sadistic tyrants. Stars Alice Coote and Danielle de Niese embody the bloody lovers Nero and Poppea with aplomb, supported by the Glyndebourne Chorus and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under the baton of Emmanuelle Haïm
