Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
72 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Wagner's colorful portrait of medieval Nuremberg, the wealthy Pogner (Ezio Flagello) promises his beautiful daughter Eva (Pilar Lorengar) in marriage to the winner of a song contest. But the girl has already set her sights on the handsome Walther (James King). Naturally, various obstacles have to be overcome before the happy conclusion. Benno Kusche plays Beckmesser, Eva's unsuccessful suitor, and Theo Adam is Hans Sachs, the town's cobbler and reigning poet whose deep insights into human nature make this opera so much more than a delightful comedy. Maestro Thomas Schippers leads the Met's vast orchestral and choral forces
Die Walküre by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
62 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wagner's powerful and wrenching tale of ill-fated love requires a cast of great singing actors, and that's just what this broadcast provides. Jon Vickers and Régine Crespin are the brother and sister who fall rapturously in love, only to be torn apart by death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Brünnhilde, the Valkyrie of the title who is punished by her father (the magnificent Theo Adam as Wotan) for doing what he really wants her to do. Herbert von Karajan conducts his final Met performance

20 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Christine Schäfer sings the title role in Berg's twelve-tone masterpiece--the femme fatale who so enthralls admirers both male and female that they are powerless to halt their own destruction. Among them are Dr. Schön (James Courtney) and his son Alwa (David Kuebler), the Countess Geschwitz (Hanna Schwarz), the Painter (Clifton Forbes), two princes, an acrobat, and a schoolboy. But the magnetic Lulu is the emotional vortex around which everything revolves--all the way through her own downward spiral, until she is brutally murdered by Jack the Ripper. Maestro James Levine brings unparalleled insight and unexpected lyricism to the score, leading a powerful performance

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( )
9 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in Italian and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
