Maria Stuarda by Gaetano Donizetti( )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The clash between two queens, with the throne of England at stake, is at the center of Donizetti's bel canto drama. Sondra Radvanovsky, in the second part of her historic traversal of all three of the composer's Tudor queen operas in one season, stars in the title role of the Catholic Mary, Queen of Scots. Her opponent is Queen Elizabeth I, sung by Elza van den Heever, as the Protestant ruler who knows her position is not secure as long as Mary lives. Tenor Celso Albelo is George Talbot, the Earl of Leicester and favorite of the queen, who urges her to reconcile with Mary. But when Mary insults Elizabeth, her tragic fate is sealed. Kwangchul Youn as Talbot and Patrick Carfizzi as Cecil complete the principal cast, and Riccardo Frizza conducts

31 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mozart's magical fairy tale has enchanted and moved audiences for more than 200 years--which is easy to understand after hearing this broadcast, brilliantly conducted by James Levine. The handsome, stalwart prince Tamino (Francisco Araiza) must fight supernatural forces to rescue the beautiful princess (Kathleen Battle) with whom he has fallen in love--after seeing only her portrait. But Tamino is in a strange land and doesn't know whom he can trust, including Sarastro (Kurt Moll), the leader of a mysterious noble order
Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

12 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable
Das Lied von der Erde by Gustav Mahler( )

25 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So einzigartig wie die formale Gestaltung des Werks, so extrem sind die Anforderungen an seine Interpreten: Es bedarf zweier gestandener Liedsänger, die im Zusammenwirken mit dem riesigen Orchesterapparat ebenso als Solisten hervortreten, wie sie sich als konzertierende Stimmen in das symphonische Gefüge mit einzuordnen vermögen. Es bedarf eines ausgezeichneten, bestens aufeinander abgestimmten Klangkörpers, und natürlich einer Dirigentenpersönlichkeit, die für Zusammenhalt sorgt und der Großform Geist und Beseeltheit verleiht. Alle diese Parameter fügten sich bei Konzerten zusammen, die am 25. und 26. Januar 2018 im Herkulessaal der Münchener Residenz aufgezeichnet wurden und nun bereits als CD bei BR Klassik veröffentlicht werden
Requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ATMA Classique is reissuing one of Les Violons du Roy's seminal discs: the orchestra's recording of Mozart's Requiem as revised and completed by Robert D. Levin. The soloists are Karina Gauvin, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, John Tessier, and Nathan Berg. Bernard Labadie conducts Les Violons du Roy and the choir of La Chapelle de Québec. This recording was originally released on the Dorian label in 2002, and won the JUNO Award for Best Classical Album of the year in the vocal or choral performance category. This recording of Mozart's Requiem is especially poignant, as it was made in Troy, NewYork in the week following the September 11 attacks in 2001.The recording captures the emotion and immediacy of that special performance, which was later featured on CBC Television's Opening Night. The Globe & Mail wrote about "an appreciation of the transcendent aspects of the Requiem as a work of art that is about death, survival and the possibility of an afterlife. There is the magnificence of the music, so often used to solemnly mark terrible tragedy and bring solace."

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
