72 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( )

81 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of La bohème is the epitome of young starving artists whose lifestyles and escapades gave us the Bohemian genre. A notion of the poverty in which they are developing their artistic talents is evident from the very first scene as painter Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm by burning pages from Rodolfo's latest drama. Set in 1830s Paris, we follow the love between Mimi and Rodolfo as the young artists experience triumphs and tragedies

Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( )

35 editions published between 1955 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This magnificent recording of Aida, made in Rome, rises to all the musical and dramatic challenges presented by Verdi’s richly-coloured Egyptian epic. Antonio Pappano, once again proving his mastery of Italian opera, moves between sumptuous grandeur and touching intimacy. The responses of the Orchestra e Coro dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia are both immediate and vibrant, while the singers – Anja Harteros, Jonas Kaufmann, Ekaterina Semenchuk, Ludovic Tézier and Erwin Schrott – do justice to every facet of their roles. Maestro Antonio Pappano became music director of these Rome-based ensembles in 2005 – and has recorded Verdi’s Requiem, Rossini’s Guillaume Tell and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly with them – but this version of Verdi’s Egyptian-set masterpiece will inevitably represent a landmark. Aida, after all, has a reputation as one of the grandest works in the repertoire, and studio recordings of large-scale operas have become something of a rarity over the past 20 years. The New York Times has predicted that “this will surely rank as one of the most prestigious recording projects of the year.” The recording was made in February 2015 in the Auditorium of Rome’s Parco della Musica – a superb 2800-seat concert hall, designed by Renzo Piano. The venue was able to accommodate all the spatial effects (such as off-stage chorus and woodwind/brass banda) that Verdi built into his score, and the producer, Stephen Johns, could evoke towering temples and echoing tombs without recourse to electronic trickery
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( )

39 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EMI: Cdh 7 61052 2
Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary performance of Verdi's unforgettable Requiem features a dream cast: soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring phrasing and the nobility with which she sings the words, is joined by Plácido Domingo, one of the great Verdi tenors of his generation, distinguished mezzo-soprano Florence Quivar, and magnificent bass John Cheek. Under James Levine's inspired conducting, the Met Orchestra and Chorus deliver a thrilling account of this breathtaking score
Duets : Cecilia & Bryn by Cecilia Bartoli( )

5 editions published in 1999 in Italian and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adriana Lecouvreur by Francesco Cilèa( Recording )

35 editions published between 1961 and 1995 in 6 languages and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Renata Scotto gives a spellbinding performance as the legendary actress of the title. With all of France at her feet, she has doubts about the faithfulness of her lover, the handsome military hero Maurizio (Neil Shicoff). To aid his claim for the Saxon throne, Maurizio has been paying court to the Princess di Bouillon (Viorica Cortez). Emotions erupt at a party given by the Princess when Adriana publicly accuses her of adultery. But the Princess gets even by sending Adriana a bouquet of poisoned flowers. The great baritone Mario Sereni is Michonnet, the faithful friend and theater director who is hopelessly in love with Adriana
Colbran, the muse by Gioacchino Rossini( )

13 editions published in 2009 in 4 languages and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

38 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 502 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
La fanciulla del West by Giacomo Puccini( )

28 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the action of the opera, based on the play by David Belasco, set at the height of the notorious Californian Gold Rush; this opera represents "a major advance on Puccini's previous work, especially in the careful interweaving of Western elements into an altogether larger canvas than anything he had tackled before."
Operatic recital by Carlo Bergonzi( )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stabat Mater by Gioacchino Rossini( )

3 editions published in 2010 in Latin and English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally renowned conductor Antonio Pappano leads an all-star cast of soloists, as well as one of Italy's best-known orchestras, in the first recording of Rossini's Stabat Mater in over ten years. This is a companion piece to last year's Verdi Messa Da Requiem by Pappano
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

45 editions published between 1960 and 2001 in 5 languages and held by 390 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
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

39 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
Verismo arias by Jonas Kaufmann( )

3 editions published in 2010 in Italian and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonas Kaufmann returns to the Italian verismo tradition to sing arias that define opera's most passionate and vulnerable leading men. Kaufmann's international reputation is soaring as he delivers consistently thrilling performances. Supporting Kaufmann is Italy's leading symphonic orchestra, the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, under its dynamic music director Antonio Pappano. Both maestro and orchestra are utterly at home in this repertoire
Mefistofele by Arrigo Boito( Recording )

23 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The elderly scholar Faust is returned to his youth by the satanic Mefistofeles for the pursuit of beauty and knowledge. In the sordid aftermath of two failed love affairs, he reflects on the illusory nature of worldly beauty, and through a mystical union with the divinity, dies redeemed
