WCSC has donated three German film DVDs and three German opera DVDs to the Library's already extensive collection of entertaining and educational DVDs. Two of the operas donated are on the current Lyric Opera season schedule, Hansel and Gretel and Die Meistersinger.

All the DVDs have subtitles and have won either U.S. or German film festival awards. This is the third year that WCSC has made a donation to the Library, including materials on German traditions and a dual language book and CD.
