Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner( Recording )

17 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( Recording )

24 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)

Hercules by George Frideric Handel( )

5 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in German and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This oratorio premiered in January 1745, and is a masterpiece that shows Handel at the height of his powers both as composer and dramatist. The central figure is Dejanira, despite the title of the work. Handel delivers a masterly portrait of a strong and determined woman gradually undermined from within
Orfeo ed Euridice by Christoph Willibald Gluck( )

7 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Odeon: 80756

Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

12 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in German and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne

Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
