Sosarme by George Frideric Handel( )

34 editions published between 1956 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alfred Deller's only complete recording of a Handel opera. First staged at the King's Theatre in London in February 1732 and revived two years later, Sosarme was not heard again in full (if not entirely complete) until a BBC broadcast in January 1955, conducted by Anthony Lewis. Conductor and performers then made this recording a month later under the aegis of Louise Hanson-Dyer and her L'Oiseau-Lyre label. 'Though not the best exemplar of Handel's skills as a musical dramatist,' according to the Handel scholar Anthony Hicks, 'Sosarme consistently illustrates his greatness as a composer.' The greatest riches of the score are found in the exquisite arias for Sosarme and Elmira, and above all in their two duets, the first of which ('Per le porte del tormento' in Act 2) transcends its context with music of piercing radiance
The fairy queen by Henry Purcell( )

26 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Fairy Queen,' two artistic geniuses met. The scenario is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream; the music is by Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of his day. The result is one of the first great operas, a dazzling display of music and emotion that has lost none of its power since its premiere in 1692. Much of the music has come to have a life beyond the opera itself: songs such as "The Plaint," "Thrice Happy Lovers" and "Hark! The Echoing air" now regularly grace the concert hall stage, a delight for singers and audiences alike. This studio recording was made with Australia's pre-eminent independent opera company, Pinchgut Opera, in 2003, and is re-released here in deluxe packaging. The cast features the finest Australian singers (Sara Macliver, Sally-Anne Russell and Paul McMahon to name but three) under the direction of Baroque specialist Antony Walker. The period instruments of the Orchestra of the Antipodes provide accompaniment of vibrant colour and immediacy." -- Jbhifi.com.au

"Here we have the very first English opera, with good gossip behind it to boot: John Blow composed the work for private performance at the English court, with King Charles II's longtime mistress Moll Davis as Venus and their illegitimate 9-year-old daughter playing Cupid. Venus and Adonis isn't just a historical curiosity, though: it's a full-scale Versailles-style opera in miniature ..."--Amazon.com description
Semele by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

23 editions published between 1956 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Semele (HWV 58) is a 'musical drama' in three parts by George Frideric Handel. The story comes from Ovid's Metamorphoses and concerns Semele, mother of Bacchus. Handel also referred to the work as 'The Story of Semele'. The work is classified as a 'musical drama', but it does fuse elements of opera, oratorio and classical drama, which anticipates the grand operas of the nineteenth century...Neither is it opera due to the large number of choruses..."--https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semele_(Handel)
