Most widely held works by Rosa Ponselle
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( )

24 editions published between 1935 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the earliest Met broadcasts to survive complete, this legendary performance is also the only existing complete recording of an Italian opera starring one of the greatest sopranos of the 20th century--Rosa Ponselle. Not yet 40 at the time but only two years away from her sudden retirement from the stage, Ponselle delivers a definitive portrayal of Verdi's most popular heroine, the doomed courtesan Violetta. She is joined by Met stalwarts Fredrick Jagel as Alfredo and Lawrence Tibbett as Germont, with Ettore Panizza on the podium

Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

16 editions published between 1936 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosa Ponselle is one of the Met's legendary singers whose mere name conjures greatness. This rare example of Ponselle, live on the Met stage in an actual performance, shows why. Her dark, velvety voice is perfectly suited to the character of Carmen: lightly flirtatious one moment, smoldering with passion the next. This is a shattering portrayal of one of the most gripping roles in opera. Once heard, you'll never experience Carmen the same way again
