Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )
196 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Donizetti's best-known opera is also one of the most popular. Audiences swooned over the unjust plight of Donizetti's Lucia (Mariella Devia), whose brother Enrico (Juan Pons) makes her renounce the man she loves, Edgardo (Jerry Hadley). She's forced into marriage, but goes insane on her wedding night, and in the riveting mad scene, still holding the bloody dagger with which she killed her bridegroom, she can finally voice her true emotions. "Spectacular" doesn't begin to describe it
I Puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )
99 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,105 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

28 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )
54 editions published between 1955 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 312 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
