Purcell's Dido and Aeneas stands as the greatest operatic achievement of seventeenth-century England, and yet, despite its global renown, it remains cloaked in mystery. The date and place of its first performance cannot be fixed with precision, and the absolute accuracy of the surviving scores, which date from almost 100 years after the work was written, cannot be assumed. In this thirtieth-anniversary new edition of her book, Ellen Harris closely examines the many theories that have been proposed for the opera's origin and chronology, considering the opera both as political allegory and as a positive exemplar for young women. Her study explores the work's historical position in the Restoration theater, revealing its roots in seventeenth-century English theatrical and musical traditions, and carefully evaluates the surviving sources for the various readings they offer-of line designations in the text (who sings what), the vocal ranges of the soloists, the use of dance and chorus, and overall layout. It goes on to provide substantive analysis of Purcell's musical declamation and use of ground bass. In tracing the performance history of Dido and Aeneas, Harris presents an in-depth examination of the adaptations made by the Academy of Ancient Music at the end of the eighteenth century based on the surviving manuscripts. She then follows the growing interest in the creation of an "authentic" version in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries through published editions and performance reviews, and considers the opera as an important factor in the so-called English Musical Renaissance. To a significant degree, the continuing fascination with Purcell's Dido and Aeneas rests on its apparent mutability, and Harris shows this has been inherent in the opera effectively from its origin.

Simon lebt, jedenfalls schlägt sein Herz noch. Doch die Ärzte stellen den klinischen Tod des Neunzehnjährigen fest. Simons Eltern müssen nun entscheiden, ob sie seine Organe zur Spende freigeben wollen, ob ein anderer mit Simons Organen weiterleben darf. In einer rasanten Folge von emotional aufwühlenden Szenen erzählt Die Lebenden reparieren von einem Tod mitten im Leben und der vielleicht schwersten Entscheidung, die Eltern treffen müssen. Ein spannender und bewegender Roman, der erschüttert und zugleich tröstet. »Ein Roman, der buchstäblich unter die Haut geht.« Wolfgang Schneider, Deutschlandradio Kultur »Ein spannender, anrührender, ein wichtiger Roman.« Niklas Bender, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung »So also ist gloriose Literatur. Kein Journalismus, kein Film käme auch nur in die Nähe jener Zone, in der sie sich bewegt ...« Peter Praschl, Die Welt

A modern tale of truth and lies woven with a story from the past. Luke lives in modern-day Australia with his mother and stepfather, Sam. He is burdened by a guilty secret: Sam has helped him to cheat in an entrance exam for a prestigious school. Lulach lives in ninth-century Scotland with his mother and stepfather, Macbeth. Macbeth becomes a great king and restores peace to the land. Luke dreams about Lulach and Macbeth at night. He is also studying the play Macbeth at school and in Shakespeare's version, Macbeth is a villain who murders the rightful king. Why did Shakespeare lie about who Macbeth really was? When is it okay to lie and when should you tell the truth? Similarly to Hitler's Daughter, Macbeth and Son challenges the reader to consider the actions of people, both in the past and present, and from a seemingly simple storyline, Macbeth and Son arrives at the morally complex question of 'What is truth? And how important is it?' Ages 10-14
