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

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

75 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story might be classic and eternal, but it's always fresh--especially with a cast like this one. As Mimì and Rodolfo, Licia Albanese and Giuseppe Di Stefano will make you feel like you're falling in love for the very first time. The headiness of the first meeting, the almost unbearable pain of parting, the poignancy of reconciliation--it's all conveyed with a vividness that will thrill and then break your heart. Hilde Gueden sparkles as the tempestuous Musetta, who sets her cap for Frank Guarrera (Marcello). The great Cesare Siepi is Colline

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

53 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 499 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( Recording )

37 editions published between 1959 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot of Verdi's dark opera on the power of fate provides little comfort to its struggling characters, but it offers listeners one spellbinding musical moment after another, and it gives singers a string of marvelous opportunities to shine. Deborah Voigt gives a stirring performance in the role of Leonora, her voice effortlessly rising above orchestra and chorus. Tenor Salvatore Licitra is a passionate Alvaro, the man whose impetuous actions result in a lifetime of heartache for everyone. Samuel Ramey sings Padre Guardiano, with Gianandrea Noseda conducting
