I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( )

85 editions published between 1951 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader
Les Huguenots by Giacomo Meyerbeer( Recording )

58 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After dominating the international opera stage for more than 30 years, Dame Joan Sutherland takes a final bow in her stunning farewell performance of Les Huguenots, Meyerbeer's grand French opera. Now regarded as one of the most memorable nights in Australia's musical history, Sutherland's formidable vocal skill is on full display throughout the demanding score, while conductor Richard Bonynge inspires orchestral brilliance at every turn
Le Comte Ory by Gioacchino Rossini( )

64 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tenor Juan Diego Flórez gives a sensational performance in the title role of Rossini's rarely heard, gender-bending comedy. Disguised as nuns, Ory and his men gain entrance to the castle of Countess Adèle (Pretty Yende in her Met debut), but the Counts attempts at seduction go comically wrong. Karine Deshayes is Isolier, Ory's page who is also in love with the Countess and determined to beat the Count at his own game. Nathan Gunn sings Raimbaud, Ory's boon companion, and bel canto specialist Maurizio Benini conducts
A glass of water by Eugène Scribe( Book )

380 editions published between 1840 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don't look now, but ... what dramatic form would you expect the French to impose on English history? Bedroom farce, of course. Good Queen Anne and the Churchills, Winston's ancestors, are here in Eugene Scribe's 19th-century classic, riding high as the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. While the Duke is struggling against the armies of Louis XIV, the Duchess is trying to inveigle Abigail Churchill's beau into bed, not knowing the girlish Queen wants him too. It's a perfect opportunity for the wily politician Bolingbroke. As seen through French eyes, these English historical characters would never recognize themselves. In fact, they'd be shocked!

La juive by F Halévy( Recording )

36 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Halévy's gripping opera had not been heard at the Met for almost 70 years when it was revived for tenor Neil Shicoff a month before this broadcast. His searing account of Eléazar, a Jewish goldsmith burdened by a terrible secret quickly became a modern operatic classic. Soile Isokoski is his beloved daughter Rachel, in love with a man who turns out not to be Samuel, a simple workman in her father's shop, but Prince Léopold (Eric Cutler). Rachel is sent to her gruesome death by Cardinal de Brogni (Ferruccio Furlanetto), who discovers Eléazar's secret too late

226 editions published between 1828 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel-François-Esprit Auber (1782-1871), the most amiable French composer of the 19th century, came to his abilities late in life. After a stalled commercial career, he studied with Cherubini. His first works were not a success, but La Bergère Châteleine (1820), written at the age of 38, established him as an operatic composer. He then met the librettist Eugène Scribe (1791-1861), with whom he developed a working partnership, one of the most successful in musical history, that lasted until S

-- Engaging Commentary and Analysis about the composer, the opera and its characters.-- Story Narrative with Music Highlight Examples-- A complete Libretto (newly translated) that incorporates Music Highlight Examples-- A Discography-- A Videography-- A Dictionary of Opera and Musical TermsEach Opera Classics Library edition is a comprehensive guide and complete analysis and evaluation of a specific opera; each is a unique "encyclopedia" that integrates important and pertinent information about each timeless classic. The objective of Opera Classics Library is to unlock opera's mysteries for the general audience, and enlighten and educate. Understanding and knowledge are the master keys to enhance enjoyment and appreciation of this great art form. Alexandre Dumas, in the final words of his novel, La Dame aux Camelias, dutifully summed up the sense of poignancy that became the basis of one of Verdi's most treasured operas: "Sleep in peace, Marguerite! Much will be forgiven you for you have greatly loved." La Traviata is an intimate portrait of a woman's agonizing defeat against the forces of destiny. Verdi's music score is a tone poem that musically captures the story's profound human passions and psychological depth
