I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi( )

92 editions published between 1951 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,991 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

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( )

60 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,078 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

137 editions published between 1827 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,022 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

La juive by F Halévy( Recording )

38 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 748 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

Les martyrs by Gaetano Donizetti( )

15 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in French and Italian and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tragic tale of Christian martyrdom, Les Martyrs began its life as Poliuto, Donizetti's Italian opera which - due to its religious content - was banned before its Naples premiere. Greatly angered by the Italian censors' decision, Donizetti moved to Paris in the hope of conquering the Opéra de Paris and securing his status as a composer of international repute. His dream largely came true when, in 1838, he signed an agreement to revise Poliuto for the Paris opera. Working together with Eugène Scribe - the grand opera librettist of the time - Donizetti went to great pains to adapt his Italian opera for Parisian audiences. Not only did he add an obligatory ballet score, but he also composed an elaborate new overture, new solos for the lead tenor and several innovative ensemble scenes. Yet, despite the opera's successful premiere, Les Martyrs soon disappeared from the Paris opera's repertory and since has only received sporadic performances, often in an Italian version. Opera Rara's revival is based on a new critical edition by Dr Flora Willson of King's College, Cambridge, which restores the opera's original French text and reinstates numerous musical passages that have note been heard since its first performance
