DVD Production wins 2 Grammy Awards[edit]

The 2007 production by the LA Opera that was released last year on DVD has won two Grammy awards: Best Classical Album and Best Opera Recording. As far as I can tell, this is the first DVD to win for Best Classical Album, because NARAS just started accepting Opera DVDs as sound recordings if there is no appropriate audio-only release of the same production. Should this be mentioned in the article for this opera? Benpatient (talk) 20:57, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Synopsis too long?[edit]

The synopsis has been tagged as being too long. What do other people think? It looks fine to me. --Kleinzach 07:55, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

I agree. Tag removed. Viva-Verdi (talk) 23:17, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Jazz Opera Instruments[edit]

Though glossed over, Kurt Well's Lider music used instruments that were novel (for orchestral use) at the time. His Lieder style is essetially Jazz Opera in instrumentation, but not like the Jazz Operas of Scott Joplin.

Use or lack of use of these instruments changes the sound of the performed music. Opera houses generally use the originally prescribed instruments, but musical theatre performance groups generally don't.

Notably used, not a complete or authoritative list

  • Accordion (The Three Penny Opera)
  • Portable Organ (The Three Penny Opera, Der Alfstig Und Fall Der Stadt Mahagonny)
  • Saxophone (The Three Penny Opera, Der Alfstig Und Fall Der Stadt Mahagonny)
  • Banjo (The Three Penny Opera, Der Alfstig Und Fall Der Stadt Mahagonny)
