'Lakme' is een in India spelende opera van een componist die vooral bekend werd door zijn balletten 'Sylvia' en 'Coppelia'. De vocale delen 'Lakme, ton doux regard se voila', 'Ah, ou va le jeune indoue' (bijgenaamd de 'Klokjesaria'), 'Tu m'as donne le plus doux reve' en 'Viens, Mallika' worden wel eens apart uitgevoerd. Het laatste stuk is een duet dat plotseling populairwerd toen het als muziek in een t.v.-spotje van Veilig Verkeer Nederland werd gebruikt. De 'Air de danses' (of 'Ballet der Bajaderen') wordt ook wel apart gespeeld
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

29 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy

After dominating the international opera stage for more than 30 years, Dame Joan Sutherland takes a final bow in her stunning farewell performance of Les Huguenots, Meyerbeer's grand French opera.

Star conductor Simon Rattle leads a superb cast in this mesmerizing performance of Debussy's rarely staged opera. Stéphane Degout and Magdalena Kožená are the tragic title couple--lovers caught in a web of passion as strong as it is forbidden. Gerald Finley delivers a remarkable portrayal of Golaud, Mélisande's husband and Pelléas's half-brother, and Felicity Palmer is their mother, Geneviève. Willard White brings dramatic and vocal intensity to the brief but crucial role of the blind old king Arkel

The legendary Joan Sutherland takes on the role of Donna Anna in this star-studded broadcast, displaying the full range of the character's feelings, from fury to mourning to revenge. Sutherland's singing perfectly balances floating legato lines with fiery coloratura. James Morris is the libertine of the title, a ruthless man in the guise of a handsome, charismatic aristocrat. Gabriel Bacquier sings his servant, Leporello, and Julia Varady is the besotted Donna Elvira
