(Applause Libretto Library). Music by Richard Rodgers Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II New book by Douglas Carter Beane Original book by Oscar Hammerstein II In March 2013, a new Rodgers and Hammerstein musical opened on Broadway new to Broadway, but based on a TV musical first written nearly 60 years before, and beloved by audiences all over the world. It was Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella , which very quickly became the belle of the ball of the Broadway season, winning cheers for its fresh take on a timeless classic. Douglas Carter Beane created a new, Tony-nominated book that was hailed for complementing the inspirational themes of Rodgers and Hammerstein with a 21st-century sensibility, giving the musical new characters, surprising plot twists, and revelatory moments that harkened back to the Charles Perrault version of the fairy tale. The score was cheered as well: the familiar songs from the television versions "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible," "A Lovely Night," "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful," and so on along with undiscovered gems from the "trunk." Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella was hailed by the Associated Press as a "charming, witty and relevant take on the classic story" and cheered by New York magazine as a "wised-up, wit-spackled CINDERELLA... As solidly entertaining as they come!"

Next to Verdi's A‹da, Giacomo Puccini's La BohŠme is the most popular opera ever written. Performances of A‹da, La BohŠme, Carmen, and Don Giovanni ? the four operas most often performed ? constitute approximately 75 percent of the yearly schedule of operas throughout the world. This volume contains everything the opera goer needs to derive full satisfaction from La BohŠme except the musical score itself. Most important, it provides the complete text of the Italian libretto, just as it is actually sung; that is, where a singer repeats a phrase several times, each of the repetitions is given here. And facing the Italian text is a completely new translation of the libretto into modern, idiomatic English. In addition to the libretto and English translation, this edition provides a careful, concise summary of the plot of La BohŠme and a complete list of the opera's characters. There is also a brief, highly informative introduction by the translator that traces Puccini's masterpiece back to its source in Henry Murger's autobiographical novel La Vie BohŠme, illuminating the early history of the opera and its later development. Opera lovers can use this book with their own recordings of the opera, read it before attending a performance, or can easily take it along to the performance itself. Those who have regretted the lack of a good, authentic, readable edition of the Italian libretto of La BohŠme, and have complained of the stodginess of existing English translations, will recognize in this book a first-rate aid to the understanding of one of Puccini's most celebrated operas.
