Werther [A lyric drama in four acts and five tableaux ; libretto by Edouard Blau, Paul Milliet, and Georges Hartmann, after Goethe] by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
38 editions published between 1969 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister

Manon by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
58 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Massenet's most popular opera receives a sensational performance led by Pierre Monteux, the foremost French conductor of his time, who brings out all the elegance and Gallic flavor of this tuneful and sophisticated score. Victoria de los Angeles is Manon, the personification of charm and allure, in a ideal portrayal. When handsome young Des Grieux (Cesare Valletti) asks her to run away from life at a convent to which her family is sending her, Manon seizes the opportunity to live a life of pleasure. But her infatuation with luxury eventually ruins them both and their story ends tragically
Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
36 editions published between 1958 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

Les contes d'Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach ( Recording )
33 editions published between 1965 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Legendary conductor Pierre Monteux is at the helm of this opera that is a combination of enticing French music wedded to a sinister German story. With Richard Tucker in the title role, Hoffmann's tales of the women he has loved--Roberta Peters, Risë Stevens, and Lucine Amara--have seldom been told so poetically. The tunes are as beguiling as Hoffman's enchanting loves, but there is always a dark force at work. Martial Singher in a tour de force appears as all four of Hoffmann's nemeses
