Metropolitan Opera's production of the opera by Puccini. The relationships of two Bohemians and their sweethearts develop stormily until both couples separate. While the two men are lamenting their loneliness in their Paris attic, one of the girl friends comes for help for the other who has consumption and wants to be taken to her lover to die. The opera is followed by a special program showing behind the scenes preparation for the production
Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

85 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,354 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 )

59 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,025 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 )

61 editions published between 1973 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 954 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

Verdi's opera is a perennial favorite and often attracts stellar casts at the Met, but seldom has there been such a glittering group of singers in one performance. The legendary Leontyne Price is Aida, one of the roles she was destined to sing. Her rival, Amneris, is none other than Marilyn Horne, acclaimed as one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. Both women are in love with Radamès--and why wouldn't they be when he's sung by the astounding Plácido Domingo. Cornell MacNeil and James Morris co-star, and James Levine galvanizes the Met orchestra and chorus
