Most widely held works by Luciano Pavarotti
Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

147 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superstar Luciano Pavarotti left his indelible mark on some of the greatest roles in the tenor repertoire--including Verdi's Duke of Mantua, one of opera's ultimate bad boys. In this performance, Pavarotti's trademark honeyed tone and suave phrasing are paired with the innocence of June Anderson's Gilda (in the soprano's Met debut season and role). Leo Nucci is the tragic jester Rigoletto who sees his life and all his plans ruined

100 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

La fille du régiment by Gaetano Donizetti( )

67 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donizetti's comedy gets a thrilling combination of brilliant singing and impish humor to make it fizz like Champagne. Joan Sutherland, the charming tomboy Marie, has fallen for Luciano Pavarotti as Tonio, who shows how happy he is by nailing nine high Cs in a single aria. Marie's "aunt" fights an uphill battle to turn the girl into a proper young society lady, until Marie is rescued by Tonio and the entire regiment of "fathers" who have raised her. "Delightful" doesn't begin to describe it

Filmed on location in Italian Renaissance landmarks, Ponnelle's lavish production captures all the tenderness and tragedy of Verdi's heartbreaking drama.

I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( Recording )

76 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 923 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
Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( )

55 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This all-star performance of Puccini's hit opera features Luciano Pavarotti as Mario Cavaradossi, one of the legendary tenor's most memorable roles. He portrays the ardent lover of the beautiful singer Floria Tosca (the great Shirley Verrett) no less convincingly than the passionate patriot fighting Rome's notorious chief of police, Baron Scarpia (Cornell MacNeil). Together, this extraordinary trio of artists conveys all the passion, jealousy, and betrayal of the drama, under the baton of James Conlon, who leads the Met's musical forces
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

71 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's beloved opera overflows with marvelous arias, ensembles, and choruses--all superbly sung by this all-star cast, under the direction of James Levine. Aprile Millo (Leonore) is in love with the mysterious troubadour Manrico (Luciano Pavarotti) but the nefarious Count Di Luna (Sherrill Milnes) wants her for himself. Add to the roiling drama the mysterious old gypsy Azucena (the intense Fiorenza Cossotto in her final Met performance), and it's a situation that is disastrous for the characters--though it inspired some of the best-known music in all of Italian opera
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )

67 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 864 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
Let's talk about love by Céline Dion( Recording )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Norma by Vincenzo Bellini( )

50 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents. Instead of killing the children, she blames herself for her misery and climbs onto the pyre to die with Pollione
