Lucia di Lammermoor by Donizetti( )

1,182 editions published between 1898 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 12,763 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
L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

583 editions published between 1905 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 7,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Enchanting" might the best word to describe Donizetti's delightful, tune-filled, and touching comedy. The marvelous Carlo Bergonzi is Nemorino, a simple, good-hearted farmer, in love with the beautiful, capricious--and wealthy--Adina (Renato Scotto), who hardly knows he even exists. She is much more taken with the flashy good looks and superficial charms of Sergeant Belcore (Mario Sereni). Enter the clever quack Dr. Dulcamara (Fernando Corena), who's peddling cheap Bordeaux wine as a mystical love potent. But Nemorino's affection for Adina is honest and sincere, and since this is a comic opera, everything ends just the way it should
Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti( )

504 editions published between 1930 and 2020 in 9 languages and held by 4,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a wealthy old bachelor decides to take a pretty young wife, he is--this being opera--in for trouble. Especially when that wife is the enchanting Reri Grist. Fernando Corena sings the matrimonially inclined title hero, whose plan to disinherit his nephew--the suave, mesmerizing Alfredo Kraus--backfires with more than a little help from Tom Krause's Dr. Malatesta
Anna Bolena by Gaetano Donizetti( )

306 editions published between 1957 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 2,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With her gripping portrayal of Anne Boleyn, soprano Sondra Radvanovsky launched her season-long quest to sing all three of Donizetti's Tudor queen operas. She conquers the extraordinary musical and dramatic demands the composer makes, starring opposite an equally impressive Ildar Abdrazakov as Henry VIII, Anne's king and husband, whose need for a son leaves him prey to lies spread about Anne by her enemies—with tragic consequences. Stephen Costello is Lord Richard Percy, Anne's former lover, Milijana Nikolic sings Jane Seymour, Anne's lady-in-waiting who has caught the king's eye. Tamara Mumford is Mark Smeaton, the queen's page who is also in love with her. Marco Armiliato conducts
Maria Stuarda by Gaetano Donizetti( )

242 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The clash between two queens, with the throne of England at stake, is at the center of Donizetti's bel canto drama. Sondra Radvanovsky, in the second part of her historic traversal of all three of the composer's Tudor queen operas in one season, stars in the title role of the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots. Her opponent is Queen Elizabeth I, sung by Elza van den Heever, as the Protestant ruler who knows her position is not secure as long as Mary lives. Tenor Celso Albelo is George Talbot, the Earl of Leicester and favorite of the queen, who urges her to reconcile with Mary. But when Mary insults Elizabeth, her tragic fate is sealed. Kwangchul Youn as Talbot and Patrick Carfizzi as Cecil complete the principal cast, and Riccardo Frizza conducts
La favorita by Gaetano Donizetti( )

238 editions published between 1903 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience
Lucrezia Borgia by Gaetano Donizetti( )

204 editions published between 1897 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 2,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Victor Hugo's most sensational play, 'Lucrece Borgia', a scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian 'bel canto' repertoire. While omitting some of its more excessive elements, the libretto by Felice Romani inspired Donizetti to compose superb arias, duets, ensembles and choruses, bringing each act to a stirring conclusion. Brimming with high drama and pathos, this production stars Greek diva Dimitra Theodossiou in the infamous title role, praised for her stupendous acting and singing as England's Queen Elizabeth I in Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux'
La fille du régiment by Gaetano Donizetti( )

176 editions published between 1940 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 2,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gennaro Papi, a former assistant under Arturo Toscanini, conducts this performance of Donzietti's La Fille Du Regiment. Soprano Lily Pons is also at her most charming and vivacious in the role of Marie. Broadcast on December 28, 1940, this is the first time this performances has been available on CD

Linda di Chamounix by Gaetano Donizetti( )

135 editions published between 1930 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La obra trata de una chica de Saboya que, para salvar a sus padres de la miseria, accede a las (poco honestas, como se verá) atenciones del Marqués de Boisfleury. Después de un dramático enfrentamiento con su padre, Linda pierde la razón, pero la recuperará al escuchar la canción de su amigo Pierotto, que suena a guisa de nostálgico leitmotiv a lo largo de la ópera. Linda huirá en París, donde conocerá el verdadero amor en forma de un joven noble que, casualmente, es sobrino del marqués. La madre del joven se opone al enlace y Linda volverá trastornada por el despecho a su pueblo. Hasta allá irá a buscarla el galante enamorado; superada la oposición familiar y, en un final feliz, todos celebrarán juntos su amor
