Die Frau ohne Schatten by Richard Strauss( Recording )

117 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 1,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strauss and Hofmannsthal's sumptuous and magical fairy tale receives an authoritative performance conducted by the great Karl Böhm, a protégé of the composer, in his last Met broadcast. The extraordinary cast is led by Leonie Rysanek as the Empress, the "woman without a shadow" of the title, who stars opposite James King as the ethereal Emperor, Walter Berry as the goodhearted Barak the Dyer, Ursula Schröder-Feinen as the hapless Dyer's Wife, and Mignon Dunn as the sinister Nurse
Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( )

73 editions published between 1944 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master
Salome by Richard Strauss( )

58 editions published between 1965 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Birgit Nilsson gives a spectacular performance as Strauss's biblical princess. Walter Cassel is the imprisoned prophet Jochanaan, the object of Salome's desire. When he rejects her advances, Salome has no hesitation in exacting her murderous revenge. The infamous final scene, in which she kisses Jochanaan's severed head, is one of the most searing endings in all of opera--and one of Nilsson's legendary performances. Karl Böhm, a protégée and collaborator of Strauss, leads a authoritative, colorful, and impassioned rendition of the score, in a performance that also stars Karl Liebl as Herod, Irene Dalis as Herodias, and George Shirley as Narraboth
Elektra by Richard Strauss( )

55 editions published between 1961 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great broadcasts in Met history, this performance of Strauss's stunning one-act drama truly deserves the adjective "legendary." The incomparable Birgit Nilsson delivers a searing portrayal of the title heroine, the Greek princess obsessed with avenging the murder of her father, Agamemnon. A passionate Leonie Rysanek is her sister, Chrysothemis, who longs for a normal life and begs Elektra to give up her fixation. Thomas Stewart sings Orest, their brother, and Jean Madeira, in her final Met appearance, gives a chilling performance as Klytämnestra, Elektra's mother. Strauss friend and protégé Karl Böhm conducts with unmatched authority and passion

Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

36 editions published between 1959 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When George London stepped on stage as the legendary lover Don Giovanni, audiences gasped. Handsome and effortlessly charismatic, he promised to fulfill every woman's desire. No wonder the beautiful Lisa Della Casa (Elvira) didn't want to let him go, and Eleanor Steber (Anna) wants to put off her wedding for another year. Ezio Flagello is the servant Leporello and Cesare Valletti is a very aristocratic Don Ottavio. The great conductor Karl Böhm revisits the opera of his Met debut
Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

46 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
Missa solemnis by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

17 editions published between 1955 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The performances of the Missa solemnis at the Styriarte Festival in Graz and at the Salzburg Festival in summer 2015 were Nikolaus Harnoncourt's last concerts. After his retirement from the stage later that year, it was Mr. Harnoncourt's express wish that this album, made from the material captured at the Graz concerts and rehearsals, also be his last released recordings. Beethoven's late masterpiece has thus become the final chapter of an unparalleled discography spanning 65 years

Fidelio by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

108 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For two centuries Fidelio's story of the power of love to fight tyranny and political oppression has inspired freedom fighters around the world. Beethoven's music uniquely captures the essence of the indomitable human spirit at its most noble. This cathartic performance, brilliantly led by Karl Böhm, brings together two legendary artists in their glorious prime: Jon Vickers as the unjustly imprisoned Florestan who is rescued by his faithful wife, Leonore, the great Birgit Nilsson in her very first performance of the role at the Met. Hermann Uhde is the malevolent Don Pizarro

Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( )

42 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's powerful and wrenching tale of ill-fated love requires a cast of great singing actors, and that's just what this broadcast provides. Jon Vickers and Régine Crespin are the brother and sister who fall rapturously in love, only to be torn apart by death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Brünnhilde, the Valkyrie of the title who is punished by her father (the magnificent Theo Adam as Wotan) for doing what he really wants her to do.
