Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

84 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorable performance marks the first time James Levine conducted Otello for a Met broadcast. He brings thrilling power and lyric sweep to Verdi's late masterpiece, leading orchestra, chorus, and soloists in a towering performance. It's not hard to understand why the great singing actor Jon Vickers owned the role of Otello for a generation: even in his first Met broadcast of the role, his gripping and ultimately devastating portrayal is equal parts heroic warrior, tender lover, mighty ruler, and betrayed friend. Teresa Zylis-Gara is a radiant Desdemona and Luis Quilico is the sly, black-hearted Iago

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

58 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
I vespri siciliani [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

57 editions published between 1973 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's gripping tale of Sicilians rising against the occupying French stars Renata Scotto in her only broadcast of this rarely heard masterpiece. From the beginning of the opera, when Elena (Scotto) sings an "innocent" song fanning the people's resentment against the foreign army, to the end, when the ringing of her wedding bells signals the start of the revolt, Scotto's artistry blazes. James Levine leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus in a wonderfully idiomatic performance, and Ruggero Raimondi is magnificent as Procida, the outlawed Sicilian leader

The story concerns the historical character of Simon Boccanegra, a 14th-century Genoan of humble birth who rose to become Doge of his native city but was poisoned by one of his own faction. The plot is famously complex, full of intrigues and dramatic incidents, including the discovery of a long-lost daughter. The action hinges on the conflict between Boccanegra and his political adversary, the aristocrat Jacopo Fiesco. Boccanegra's long-lost daughter, Amelia, is also Fiesco's granddaughter. She remains ignorant of her origins for most of the opera, and only learns the entire truth in the final act
