Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss( )

12 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part poetic fairy tale, part meditation on family and marriage, Strauss and Hofmannsthal's opera features one of the composer's most ambitious and colorful scores. This broadcast was part of a run of performances that marked a breakthrough for soprano Christine Goerke, who delivers a blazing portrayal of the Dyer's Wife. She is joined by an extraordinary cast that also includes Anne Schwanewilms in her Met debut as the Empress (the woman without a shadow of the title), Torsten Kerl as the Emperor, Johan Reuter as Barak, and Ildikó Komlósi as the Nurse. Vladimir Jurowski leads the vast musical forces

The young Leonie Rysanek triumphs in her second Met broadcast of the almost four dozen she would do during her astonishing career. Here she is Elizabeth of Valois, married to King Philip II of Spain (Jerome Hines), even though she loves his son, Don Carlo (Giulio Gari). Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition. Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice

Parsifal : [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in German and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Moses und Aron : opernfragment in zwei akten by Arnold Schoenberg( Visual )

8 editions published in 2006 in German and Italian and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moses und Aron (Moses and Aaron) is a three-act opera by Arnold Schoenberg with a German libretto by the composer after the book of Exodus. Unfinished at the time of the composer's death in 1951, it is--despite its unfinished status--widely regarded as Schoenberg's masterwork. From the sketchy outline of the play (1926) to its final version (1927) and to the inception of Moses und Aron as an oratorio (1928) and then into an opera, it was composed between 1930 and 1932. It is Schoenberg's response in dramatic form to the growing anti-Jewish movements in the German-speaking world after 1848 and his finest attempt at meshing his philosophical ideas with his artistry. It can be approached on many different levels: as an example of his twelve-tone system, as a work of biblical commentary, or as an attempt to work out the problems facing the Jew in the modern world

James Levine leads the Met orchestra, bringing out the shimmer and the thunder of the score, along with every shade of expression in between

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in German and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)

Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( )

2 editions published in 2007 in Italian and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
