Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy ( Recording )
60 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
James Levine brilliantly leads Debussy's colorful score, illuminating the mysterious world in which the title characters are trapped. Jeannette Pilou is the elusive young Mélisande, discovered deep in a forest by Golaud (José van Dam in an incandescent performance), who marries her. But it is Golaud's younger half-brother, Pelléas (Dale Duesing), with whom she falls in love. The increasingly jealous Golaud warns Pelléas to keep away from his wife. When the lovers meet one last time before Pelléas's departure on a journey, Golaud kills him. Mélisande gives birth to a daughter and dies, leaving Golaud to wonder if she ever loved him. Jerome Hines co-stars as the old King Arkel, Golaud and Pelléas's grandfather.This performance is taken from the James Levine 40th anniversary CD box set

Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod ( Recording )
56 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No one ever doubted the handsome, charismatic Italian tenor Franco Corelli was the personification of the romantic hero. So what better role for him than Roméo, the impetuous youth who defies his family, and his city, to follow where his heart leads? Corelli's ardor knows no bounds in his quest for Juliette (the sparkling Judith Blegen). This performance leaves no doubt that even though Roméo and Juliette are young, they are truly, profoundly in love

Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
55 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
30 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 672 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

The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father
