I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( )

116 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( )

118 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's immortal tragedy about the clash of true love with social convention has seldom been as poignant as in this broadcast. The sensational Italian tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, in his second season at the Met, offers his first Alfredo with the company--a tender, romantic, and gorgeously sung performance that perfectly matches Eleanor Steber's sumptuous and touching Violetta. Robert Merrill, heard here at the beginning of his career, would go on to make the role of Germont one of his calling cards
Cavalleria rusticana by Pietro Mascagni( )

103 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( )

110 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

118 editions published between 1953 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( )

83 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seldom has the Bohemian world of 19th-century Paris, with its young writers, painters, philosophers, and the women they love, been brought to life more vividly than in this broadcast. Young Giuseppe di Stefano's charismatic Rodolfo is the embodiment of romantic ardor, and Bidú Sayão brings charm and personality to her portrayal of Mimì. Together they make a couple to sweep audiences off into the land of first love at its most beguiling. The great Cesare Siepi, in his first Met season, is a delightful Colline

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

56 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 506 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

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

31 editions published between 1959 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
