Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

153 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don Juan: no woman can resist him and every man wants to be him. He is charisma in the flesh. But things go wrong, and divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. This all-star cast, galvanized by James Levine's passionate yet stylish conducting, brings to life one of the greatest of all operas. Sherrill Milnes is the magnetic Don and Leontyne Price the avenging Donna Anna. Irrepressible Teresa Stratas (Zerlina) is the peasant woman who can't say "no" but can't quite say "yes," either

18. Jahrhundert; Oper
Così fan tutte : [opera buffa in two acts] by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

69 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes the saucy, clever maid knows more about men and love than her aristocratic, sophisticated employers. When the great singing actress Teresa Stratas, as Despina, explains the facts of life to Teresa Zylis-Gara's Fiordiligi and Rosalind Elias's Dorabella, you know the two ladies are in for an education in the way the world truly works. Walter Berry is at his ironic best as Don Alfonso, the cynical philosopher who sets up this "school for lovers." As much as Mozart and his librettist Da Ponte adored women, they weren't above a bit of scandalous humor--just to set the record straight

21 editions published between 1973 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Schöpfung = The creation by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

73 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This marvellous recording, sung in German, comes as a surprise, since Bernard Haitink is not obviously associated with Haydn. In fact he didn't tackle The Creation until 2011, when he was 82. He approaches this great choral masterpiece with wit, unhurried grandeur, riveting orchestral detail and forward momentum - in short, with just the acuity he brings to anything he conducts. (....) Gabriel (soprano Camilla Tilling), Uriel (tenor Mark Padmore), and Raphael (bass Hanno Müller-Brachmann). Choir, orchestra and soloists are on sparkling form in this live recording - an invigorating reminder, if any were needed, of Haydn's genius" (The Guardian)

Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss( Recording )

53 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse

Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

48 editions published between 1955 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss's poignant fairy tale of 18th-century Vienna is brilliantly realized by a glittering cast under the musical direction of the great Karl Böhm, a friend and protégé of the composer. Vienna's own Leonie Rysanek is the beautiful and wise Marschallin, the woman who knows her affair with the impetuous Octavian (a superb Christa Ludwig) will not last forever. The enchanting Reri Grist sings Sophie, the girl who captures the young man's heart. Water Berry is appropriately loveable and boorish as Sophie's would-be fiancé, the rustic Baron Ochs, who becomes the victim of Octavian's elaborate joke. Nicolai Gedda is luxuriously cast as the Italian Singer

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's masterpiece stars Violeta Urmana in the tour-de-force title role and Joyce DiDonato as the high-minded young Composer of the opera-within-an-opera. The performance of his serious work is interrupted to comic effect by the arrival of Zerbinetta (Kathleen Kim) and her commedia dell'arte troupe. Robert Dean Smith sings the god Bacchus who leads the grieving Ariadne away to a new life. Thomas Allen is the Music Master and Fabio Luisi conducts
Johannes-Passion = St. John Passion : BWV 245 by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

17 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foundations of Marc Minkowski's career lie in Baroque music, and he has enjoyed a long relationship with Warner Classics, but this Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) is his first Bach for the label. The work's terse drama--here presented through just nine singers--is ideally suited to both his scrupulous musicianship and his keen sense of theatre. The French conductor describes Bach's great masterpieces as 'a journey you have to prepare for meticulously, over a long period of time. You come back from it like an explorer comes back from Everest or the moon--transformed'"--Warnerclassics.com
