Carmen by Georges Bizet( Recording )

32 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 527 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)

44 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 386 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

James Levine on the podium brings an ideal blend of sparkle and lyricism to Rossini's enchanting comedy.

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
