Idomeneo by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

79 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A splendid keepsake of a production which must surely rank among Glyndebourne's greatest, a noble performance of the work in which Mozart's dramatic genius first attained its full stature."--Thomas Heinitz, Saturday Review. (cover)
L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in Italian and No Linguistic content and held by 705 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
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

70 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 672 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
