Most widely held works by Luciano Pavarotti
Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

173 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superstar Luciano Pavarotti left his indelible mark on some of the greatest roles in the tenor repertoire--including Verdi's Duke of Mantua, one of opera's ultimate bad boys. In this performance, Pavarotti's trademark honeyed tone and suave phrasing are paired with the innocence of June Anderson's Gilda (in the soprano's Met debut season and role). Leo Nucci is the tragic jester Rigoletto who sees his life and all his plans ruined
La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

183 editions published between 1961 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musical excerpts drawn from Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème (London 421 049-2) with descriptive narration by Robert Lyall, to promote the upcoming production of the opera on February 11 & 12, 2005 by Opera Grand Rapids in De Vos Hall
L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

106 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,787 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 traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

119 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giuseppe Verdi's sentimental favorite is the story of Violetta, the self-sacrificing courtesan who sells her jewels to keep her younger lover living in bucolic bliss
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( )

82 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's beloved opera overflows with marvelous arias, ensembles, and choruses--all superbly sung by this all-star cast, under the direction of James Levine. Aprile Millo (Leonore) is in love with the mysterious troubadour Manrico (Luciano Pavarotti) but the nefarious Count Di Luna (Sherrill Milnes) wants her for himself. Add to the roiling drama the mysterious old gypsy Azucena (the intense Fiorenza Cossotto in her final Met performance), and it's a situation that is disastrous for the characters--though it inspired some of the best-known music in all of Italian opera
Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( )

30 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The music Verdi wrote for this opera is often elegant and enticing, but the story is dark and ultimately tragic. Under James Levine's inspired musical direction, this is a performance that runs the entire emotional gamut. Luciano Pavarotti is King Gustav III of Sweden, who is in love with Amelia (Deborah Voigt), the wife of his best friend, Anckarström (Juan Pons). Political intrigue and marital misunderstandings collide at a glittering court ball--with disastrous consequences for everyone concerned
Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( )

79 editions published between 1976 and 2021 in 7 languages and held by 1,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poor Luisa Miller (Katia Ricciarelli) has given her heart to a man she knows as "Carlo." But he is really Rodolfo (Luciano Pavarotti), the son of Count Walter (Paul Plishka), who is being pressured by the Count to marry another woman. Despite every effort of Lucia's loving father (Leo Nucci), the evil Wurm (John Cheek), eventually triumphs. But it's Verdi's passionate music that wins in the end, brought to life by a cast who knows how to stir our hearts
Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti in concert( Recording )

Opera and zarzuela arias and ensembles, and songs; orchestra acc
Turandot by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

92 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musical excerpts drawn from Puccini's Turandot (London 414 274-2) with descriptive narration by Robert Lyall, to promote the upcoming production of the opera on October 21 & 22, 2005 by Opera Grand Rapids in De Vos Hall
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

121 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,325 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
Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( )

66 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This all-star performance of Puccini's hit opera features Luciano Pavarotti as Mario Cavaradossi, one of the legendary tenor's most memorable roles. He portrays the ardent lover of the beautiful singer Floria Tosca (the great Shirley Verrett) no less convincingly than the passionate patriot fighting Rome's notorious chief of police, Baron Scarpia (Cornell MacNeil). Together, this extraordinary trio of artists conveys all the passion, jealousy, and betrayal of the drama, under the baton of James Conlon, who leads the Met's musical forces
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

74 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,214 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'amico Fritz by Mascagni( )

62 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EMI: Cdh 7 61052 2
Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in Italian and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents. Instead of killing the children, she blames herself for her misery and climbs onto the pyre to die with Pollione
The three tenors Christmas by Three Tenors( )

35 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in 8 languages and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La fille du régiment by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

73 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donizetti's comedy gets a thrilling combination of brilliant singing and impish humor to make it fizz like Champagne. Joan Sutherland, the charming tomboy Marie, has fallen for Luciano Pavarotti as Tonio, who shows how happy he is by nailing nine high Cs in a single aria. Marie's "aunt" fights an uphill battle to turn the girl into a proper young society lady, until Marie is rescued by Tonio and the entire regiment of "fathers" who have raised her. "Delightful" doesn't begin to describe it
I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

86 editions published between 1972 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 983 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
