    I posted this in the stepping stones thread, but I have it on repeat right now. I had never heard this composition by her (plenty of other stuff, good composer).

    Allüberall und ewig blauen licht die Fernen! Ewig ... ewig ...

    I've been uploading complete operas w/ subtitles to my youtube channel
    http://www.youtube.com/user/regulargonzalez/videos

    Currently have:
    Der Freischutz
    Simon Boccanegra
    Euryanthe
    Rusalka (English language)
    Tristan und Isolde (Barenboim / Meier, Jerusalem)
    Roberto Devereux
    Eugene Onegin
    Werther
    La Damnation de Faust
    Madama Butterfly
    La Sonnambula
    Lohengrin
    Orphee aux Enfers
    Iphigenie en Tauride
    Die Zauberflote
    L'Heure Espagnole
    L'Enfant et les Sortileges
    Arabella
    Werther (Kaufmann, but no subs)
    The Flying Dutchman
    The entire 90/91 Met Ring
    Tosca (Corelli)
    The Nose
    Manon
    Nozze

    e: it's interesting seeing what videos get the most views. People LOVE the Jonas Kaufmann Werther, even lacking subtitles. Butterfly, Orphee aux Enfers, and all Wagner are also popular (except, surprisingly, for Tristan). The Ravel operas, not so much.

    Hungarian director Miklós Szinetár filmed in 1981 this version of Bartók's Bluebeard’s Castle. Sylvia Sass and Kolos Kováts were singing, and Georg Solti conducting:

    At first sight, it could seem a rather bizarre idea to shoot a silent film of an opera.


    However, this had happened several times. Der Rosenkavalier was based on Strauss's opera and directed by Robert Wiene in 1926. The music during the film's performances was provided by an orchestra. At the premiere, this was conducted by Richard Strauss himself.


    This was a modern showing of the film, at Dresden:

    The great diva is just a down to urban earth regular girl.

    "No preluding! Piano pianissimo -- then all will be well." (Posted in the orchestra pit on August 13, 1876)

    Brief Encounter (1945) was one of the first movies directed by David Lean, with an screenplay by Noël Coward. This tale of a suburban love story between a married man and a married woman (married to other partners, that is), British style, was the winner of the Cannes Film Festival and a big success for Lean. Part of this success was perhaps due to the intelligent use of the wonderful Piano Concerto No. 2 by Sergei Rachmaninoff, played by Eileen Joyce:



    In 2009, Houston Grand Opera premiered Brief Encounter, the opera, based on the same story, with music by André Previn.

    Louis Moreau Gottschalk was born in New Orleans, educated in the Paris Conservatory and an acclaimed pianist across all America. He visited extensively Central and Southern America, where he died from malaria in Rio de Janeiro, at forty years old.


    This very short opera, Escenas campestres Cubanas (1860), is one of his best known compositions:

    Citizen Kane is regularly considered one of the best movies of all time, in many of the lists compiled by critics.


    In the plot, Kane falls in love with a singer, Susan Alexander, and tries to launch an operatic career for her, with disastrous results. The opera was a fictitious one, called "Salammbo". Bernard Herrmann composed a full aria, performed here by Kiri Te Kanawa:
