Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss( )

31 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master
Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( )

34 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part

36 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The young Leonie Rysanek triumphs in her second Met broadcast of the almost four dozen she would do during her astonishing career. Here she is Elizabeth of Valois, married to King Philip II of Spain (Jerome Hines), even though she loves his son, Don Carlo (Giulio Gari). Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition. Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice

La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

49 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 605 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

Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

39 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance of Verdi's towering Requiem Mass--given in memory of President John F. Kennedy--brings together four of the greatest Verdi singers of their generation. Soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring voice and the deep feeling she brought to all her performances, is ideally paired with mezzo-soprano Rosalind Elias in the stirring "Recordare" duet. Tenor Carlo Bergonzi and bass Cesare Siepi are equally profound yet stylish in their rendition of this soulful work. Georg Solti conducts in his final appearance at the Met
L'Italiana in Algeri by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

18 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine on the podium brings an ideal blend of sparkle and lyricism to Rossini's enchanting comedy. Olga Borodina is Isabella, the Italian girl who ends up in Algiers as she searches for her lost lover, Lindoro, sung by the sensational Juan Diego Flórez. Ferruccio Furlanetto is Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, who keeps Lindoro prisoner and decides to make Isabella his own wife--even though he is already married to Elvira (Lyubov Petrova). Earle Patriarco is Taddeo and Mariusz Kwiecien sings the pirate captain Haly

Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

40 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the scintillating direction of James Levine, the Met's orchestra and chorus add more than a dash of seasoning to Bizet's colorful score. A brilliant cast makes this popular work seem utterly fresh. Agnes Baltsa is riveting as Carmen, the impetuous gypsy woman determined to always be her own woman--while having any man she desires. José Carreras is heartbreaking as Don José, the man who falls into her snare, makes the mistake of loving her, and cannot stand to lose her to the strutting matador, Escamillo (Samuel Ramey)
La Cenerentola by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

26 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An adaptation of the Cinderella story. The story is the familiar fairy tale but with the fairy element left out. In place of the fairy godmother, we have Alidoro, a philosophic person and friend of the Prince. The glass slipper is replaced with a pair of bracelets. One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending
