Most widely held works by Giuseppe Di Stefano
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

217 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,039 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( Recording )

109 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,192 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
Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

98 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

59 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 600 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 )

26 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 301 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

49 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
