As King Louis XIV and Jean-Baptiste Lully had a close relationship, Lully’s goal was to respect and obey King Louis’s demands upon the arts. Because Lully was King Louis XIV’s favorite court musician, it was with his permission and support that Lully created a French style opera. In obedience to the crown and to France, Lully “reconciled the demands of drama, music, and ballet in a new French form of opera” (Burkholder, et al. 361). One of the elements of the new French opera that shows the influence of King Louis XIV on Lully’s Armide was the overture at the beginning. As this overture was in welcome of the king, its sound was appropriately majestic in keeping with King Louis’s use of the arts as propaganda.
As well as being charismatic and likeable, Wilde was extremely witty; he had a way with words that served him well both in his career and in his personal relationships.

However, Wilde could not hide his homosexual tendencies, which would eventually lead to his downfall. Imprisoned in 1896 under charges of sodomy, Wilde began a slow decline during his two years in jail, moving to Paris upon his release and ultimately dying alone in 1900 (Harris).

The melodies in The Magic Flute always linger on hours after I have listened to them. What is more, the conductor of the version I listened to, Riccardo Muti and the Wiener Philharmoniker excellently executed performance of this beautiful,masterful work. Lastly, The Magic Flute contains one of my favourite arias ever written because of how dramatic it is but more importantly how technically demanding it is and it is none other than the famous Queen of the Night aria (translated to English), ‘Hell’s Vengeance Boils In My Heart’ and specifically the version sung by Edita

Individually the symbols offer a well-developed message; however, the multiple meanings contradict, because the different meanings mean opposite ideas. For example, Hester will forever be seen as an adulterer and a steward. These are two opposite concepts, especially in Puritan Society, because a steward helps and an adulterer sins. As the scarlet letter changes through the novel, the symbol contradicts Hester's image and her role in society. Hester is scarred with her sin and the punishment from the Puritans.
One of the most popular scenes in the history of literature is the “balcony scene” described by Shakespeare in his play Romeo and Juliet. The scene shows Romeo and Juliet meeting after they have just shared a kiss, and professing their love for one another, while also making plans for their marriage the next day. The popularity of the scene has caused it to take on many different forms and depictions through all facets of media. Two of the most popular depictions are in Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 movie, Romeo and Juliet, and Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film, Romeo and Juliet. In my opinion, Franco Zeffirelli’s version of Shakespeare’s most famous work was superior to Baz Lurmann’s because Zeffirelli’s was far more realistic, there was more of a sense
