Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

214 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( )

109 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bellini's last opera, set during the time of the English Civil War, is a glorious treasure of melody. Ruth Ann Swenson is Elvira, the lovely Puritan heroine who goes mad when she thinks she has been jilted by her lover, Arturo (Stuart Neill). But he has only been doing his duty as a Cavalier in saving his queen, the widow of King Charles I, from the death sentence imposed by the Puritans. His good deed, and his love for Elvira, condemn him to be executed--a fate from which he is spared by a general amnesty. The shock of joy restores Elvira's sanity and it all ends happily. Thomas Hampson is Riccardo, Arturo's political enemy and rival for Elvira's affection
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( )

116 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,278 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

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( )

80 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 878 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

La gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

25 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 292 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

53 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
