Le prophète; [opera in five acts by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

80 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meyerbeer's grand operas once ruled the operatic world, but they're rarities today. With this performance the Met pulled out all the stops to show modern audiences what all the fuss was about. James McCracken is Jean of Lyden, a simple innkeeper who is proclaimed the Prophet and who leads a religious uprising in medieval Holland. During the turmoil he denounces his mother, Fidès (Marilyn Horne at her spectacular best), and his fiancé, Berthe (a passionate Renata Scotto), turns on him. The opera ends catastrophically but is filled with colorful music

Marilyn Horne recital by Marilyn Horne( )

9 editions published between 1965 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marilyn Horne fue un fenómeno vocal del siglo XX, y este temprano recital (su primer solo?) de 1964, es un ejemplo de un tipo de voz y cantar aparentemente fácil de encontrar en el siglo XIX pero que tenía, al parecer, poco que hacer en el XX hasta el "renacimiento" del bel canto. Aquí ofrece 52 minutos del más deslumbrante canto que sea posible oír

Carmen by Georges Bizet( )

8 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carmen is enticing, irresistible, and devastatingly fatal. Men can't resist her, but she refuses to be tied down. In Bizet's ever-popular opera, this leads to broken hearts, jealousy--and death. The composer expresses every nuance of the riveting title character in her music, and seldom has it been as superbly sung as the great Marilyn Horne does here. She is earthy, erotic, dangerous, and unforgettable. James McCracken is an explosive Don José, the poor soldier who gives up everything for Carmen, only to lose her in the end and seal his own fate
