Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

53 editions published between 1956 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

26 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bizet's enticing gypsy has seldom been as earthy and Gallic as when Régine Crespin unleashed her feminine wiles to capture the heart of every man in her path. Don José (William Lewis) doesn't really stand a chance of resisting her allure. Katia Ricciarelli is the innocent Micaela and José van Dam sings Escamillo, the charismatic bullfighter who turns Carmen's head and ultimately seals her doom

But he is really Rodolfo (Luciano Pavarotti), the son of Count Walter (Paul Plishka), who is being pressured by the Count to marry another woman. Despite every effort of Lucia's loving father (Leo Nucci), the evil Wurm (John Cheek), eventually triumphs. But it's Verdi's passionate music that wins in the end, brought to life by a cast who knows how to stir our hearts

Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( )

35 editions published between 1981 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 364 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
