Montserrat Caballé is one of the few sopranos who have triumphed at the Met in the Herculean role of Norma. She was acclaimed for the astonishing beauty of her voice, her unbelievable breath control, and the ability to spin out shimmering soft tones that sent the audience into a frenzy. When she brought those formidable gifts to Bellini's magical score, the result was electrifying.

Lucrezia Borgia by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
53 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on Victor Hugo's most sensational play, 'Lucrece Borgia', a scandalous tale of murder, torture, incest, homosexuality, drunkenness and orgies, Donizetti's opera is one of the great masterpieces of Italian 'bel canto' repertoire. While omitting some of its more excessive elements, the libretto by Felice Romani inspired Donizetti to compose superb arias, duets, ensembles and choruses, bringing each act to a stirring conclusion. Brimming with high drama and pathos, this production stars Greek diva Dimitra Theodossiou in the infamous title role, praised for her stupendous acting and singing as England's Queen Elizabeth I in Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux'
Il pirata by Vincenzo Bellini ( Recording )
55 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the searing final scene Imogene goes insane when Gualtiero is condemned to death. This is riveting bel canto drama as you have seldom hear it

Conductor Thomas Schippers leads a sensational cast in a gripping opera that at the time of this broadcast hadn't been heard at the Met in almost 40 years. As Luisa, Montserrat Caballé broke hearts, her beautiful voice and limpid singing conveying every nuance of the young girl's plight. Richard Tucker is a passionate, enticing Rodolfo, the man she loves but does not really know. As Luisa's tortured father, Sherrill Milnes demonstrates just how exciting a great Verdi baritone part can be. Ezio Flagello (Wurm) and Giorgio Tozzi (Count Walter) are evil personified

41 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome.
