I Puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

85 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( )

EMI: Cdh 7 61052 2
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

110 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

39 editions published between 1952 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Schippers leads a superlative cast in one of Donizetti's most beloved comic operas. This two disc set was taken from a live performance on March 5, 1966 and features Carlo Bergonzi as Nemorino and Roberta Peters as Adina
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

101 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 633 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
