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
Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

113 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's revolutionary score changed the world of music with its radical portrayal of an all-consuming passion that can only be fulfilled in death. The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne
Elektra by Richard Strauss( Recording )

82 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 567 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

Salome by Richard Strauss( Recording )

47 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 498 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
Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

48 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck
