Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( )

31 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enrico Caruso famously said that putting on Trovatore was easy: the only thing needed were the four best singers in the world. Few people would take issue with the sensational cast of this broadcast: The radiant superstar Joan Sutherland, in her last operatic appearance at the Met, is Leonora, the young woman loved by two men--the outlaw Manrico (Luciano Pavarotti in spectacular form), and the noble but sinister Count di Luna (commanding Verdi baritone Leo Nucci). Between them, and at the center of the drama, stands the mysterious gypsy Azucena (the late, great Shirley Verrett), whose actions years before throw a long shadow over the protagonists' lives

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

45 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti( )

43 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 962 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

44 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superstar Luciano Pavarotti left his indelible mark on some of the greatest roles in the tenor repertoire--including Verdi's Duke of Mantua, one of opera's ultimate bad boys. In this performance, Pavarotti's trademark honeyed tone and suave phrasing are paired with the innocence of June Anderson's Gilda (in the soprano's Met debut season and role). Leo Nucci is the tragic jester Rigoletto who sees his life and all his plans ruined
Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

50 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's last work is his only major comedy and one of his crowning glories. Judith Raskin and Luigi Alva are the enchanting Fenton and Nannetta who want to be married even though her father, Ford (Frank Guarrera), objects. Ford's wife Alice (Phyllis Curtin) is being wooed by Falstaff (Ezio Flagello) who is also interested in Meg Page (Mildred Miller). Fortunately Dame Quickly (Fedora Barbieri) is a match for Falstaff and teaches him a lesson
