Die Walküre by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
33 editions published between 1944 and 2003 in German and Undetermined and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Even by the Met's own high standards, this Walküre cast is nothing short of breathtaking. Lauritz Melchior's truly heroic Siegmund beautifully complements Rose Bampton's feminine, appealing Sieglinde. No wonder Helen Traubel (Brünnhilde) melts when she sees the depths of their love for each other. But Kerstin Thorborg's imperious Fricka is unyielding in her demands that her husband, Wotan (Herbert Janssen), punish Siegmund for breaking the laws of marriage. With menacing, black-voiced bass Alexander Kipnis as the aggrieved Hunding, and conducted by George Szell, this is Wagner at his most stirring

Lauritz Melchior heads a stellar cast in this remarkable broadcast of Wagner's Romantic opera. As the knightly title hero, he comes to the aid of Elsa (Astrid Varnay), the innocent young woman accused of murdering her brother by the evil Ortrud (Kerstin Thorborg) and her husband, the scheming Telramund (Alexander Sved).

14 editions published between 1949 and 1999 in German and Undetermined and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
9 editions published between 1980 and 2004 in German and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
