Death in Venice (1971) - Luchino Visconti [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
The novella Death in Venice was written in German by Thomas Mann, and was first published in 1912 as Der Tod in Venedig. It is often said to be Mann's most important short narration.
A film version directed by Luchino Visconti was made in 1971, with Dirk Bogarde as Gustav von Aschenbach and Bjorn Andresen as Tadzio. Benjamin Britten wrote an operatic version of the story on a libretto by Myfanwy Piper (premiered 1973). --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_in_Venice [Nov 2005]
