Maria Stuarda by Gaetano Donizetti( )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The clash between two queens, with the throne of England at stake, is at the center of Donizetti's bel canto drama. Sondra Radvanovsky, in the second part of her historic traversal of all three of the composer's Tudor queen operas in one season, stars in the title role of the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots. Her opponent is Queen Elizabeth I, sung by Elza van den Heever, as the Protestant ruler who knows her position is not secure as long as Mary lives. Tenor Celso Albelo is George Talbot, the Earl of Leicester and favorite of the queen, who urges her to reconcile with Mary. But when Mary insults Elizabeth, her tragic fate is sealed. Kwangchul Youn as Talbot and Patrick Carfizzi as Cecil complete the principal cast, and Riccardo Frizza conducts

Mozart's magical fairy tale has enchanted and moved audiences for more than 200 years--which is easy to understand after hearing this broadcast, brilliantly conducted by James Levine. The handsome, stalwart prince Tamino (Francisco Araiza) must fight supernatural forces to rescue the beautiful princess (Kathleen Battle) with whom he has fallen in love--after seeing only her portrait. But Tamino is in a strange land and doesn't know whom he can trust, including Sarastro (Kurt Moll), the leader of a mysterious noble order
Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der deutsche Bariton Christian Gerhaher ist zweifellos einer der besten Liedsänger der Welt. Auf seiner neuen CD widmet er sich gemeinsam mit Kent Nagano und dem Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal sowie Klaus Florian Vogt, Tenor, erstmals Mahlers berühmtem Werk "Das Lied von der Erde", seiner Vertonung von sieben Gedichten für Tenor, Alt und Orchester, laut Mahlers eigenem Bekunden "das Persönlichste, was ich je geschrieben habe". Das Werk komponierte Mahler 1907, einem Jahr, in dem sein Leben durch mehrere schwere Schicksalsschläge (dem Tod seiner Tochter, dem Rücktritt als Direktor der Wiener Hofoper und eigener Krankheit) gezeichnet war. Christian Gerhaher, Klaus Florian Vogt und dem Orchester unter Nagano gelingt es, die Tiefen und die Farbigkeit von Mahlers Werk in allen Details auszuloten. Nr. 1 Das Trinklied vom Jammer der Erde: Allegro pesante Nr. 2 Der Einsame im Herbst: Etwas schleichend. Ermüdet Nr. 3 Von der Jugend: Behaglich heiter Nr. 4 Von der Schönheit: Comodo. Dolcissimo Nr. 5 Der Trunkene im Frühling: Allegro Nr. 6 Der Abschied: Schwer
Die Schöpfung = The creation by Joseph Haydn( Recording )

33 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This marvellous recording, sung in German, comes as a surprise, since Bernard Haitink is not obviously associated with Haydn. In fact he didn't tackle The Creation until 2011, when he was 82. He approaches this great choral masterpiece with wit, unhurried grandeur, riveting orchestral detail and forward momentum - in short, with just the acuity he brings to anything he conducts. (....) Gabriel (soprano Camilla Tilling), Uriel (tenor Mark Padmore), and Raphael (bass Hanno Müller-Brachmann). Choir, orchestra and soloists are on sparkling form in this live recording - an invigorating reminder, if any were needed, of Haydn's genius" (The Guardian)

Faust by Charles Gounod( )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in French and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

16 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
