Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( )
14 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents. Instead of killing the children, she blames herself for her misery and climbs onto the pyre to die with Pollione
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )
15 editions published between 1960 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )
16 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
La sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )
15 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The extraordinary Diana Damrau brings aching lyricism and coloratura fireworks to the role of Amina, the innocent village girl whose sleepwalking causes misunderstandings that almost prevent her marriage to the handsome Elvino, sung by new bel canto star tenor Javier Camarena. Michele Pertusi is Count Rodolfo, and Marco Armiliato conducts Bellini's melodious score
