La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

21 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice

Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

30 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This live recording of Il Trovatore was made on a tour by La Scala in Moscow in 1964, and it has the kind of old-fashioned, blood-red passion that was perhaps only possible with all-Italian casts. Its level of intensity, even wildness, accentuates the plot's melodramatic qualities and makes it hugely compelling. Of the principals, only Giulietta Simionato as Azucena is vocally inconsistent. Dramatically, its possible to forgive her since she is in fact portraying an old woman, but she doesn't begin with performance with the ideal power, although she grows vocally more secure as the performance progresses, and by the last act she is completely engaging, giving full voice to her character's rage. Gabriella Tucci is an utterly radiant Leonora

La rondine by Giacomo Puccini( )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soprano Kristine Opolais made a celebrated Met debut in Puccini's bittersweet story of love and loss.

Anna Christy is Magda's feisty maid Lisette and Marius Brenciu sings the poet Prunier
La Sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

21 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in 5 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Sonnambula" (The Sleepwalker) was first produced at the Teatro Careano, Milan, in March 1831. The libretto, by Romani, the foremost Italian librettist of the time, sets forth a rather childish if simple and natural story of lowly life in a Swiss village. The heroine, Amina, is a rustic damsel who walks in her sleep. Rodolfo, the young lord of the village, has just returned from abroad, and Amina, in her sleep, enters his room at the inn. Amina's wedding to Elvino, a wealthy landowner, was just about to be celebrated. But now the jealous Lisa, the pretty hostess of the inn, denounces Amina, and herself gains the temporary regard of Elvino. Rodolfo proclaims Amina's innocence, but nobody believes him until Amina is seen walking in her sleep, this time over a slim bridge above the mill-wheel. Her innocence is thus confirmed, and the conventional happy ending is assured
Ecce cor meum by Paul McCartney( Recording )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
Mefistofele by Arrigo Boito( Recording )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The elderly scholar Faust is returned to his youth by the satanic Mefistofeles for the pursuit of beauty and knowledge. In the sordid aftermath of two failed love affairs, he reflects on the illusory nature of worldly beauty, and through a mystical union with the divinity, dies redeemed
Il trittico by Giacomo Puccini( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first work is a love tale set among the poor bargemen of Paris. The second work relates the story of a nun's suicide. The third work is a humorous story of greedy relatives who manipulate a dead man's will
