101 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jon Vickers sings one of his most acclaimed roles, the tortured fisherman of the title, in Britten's powerful drama.

Performances of Berlioz's epic masterpiece are rare events--under James Levine's inspired leadership, the stellar cast and the Met's chorus and orchestra triumphantly meet the enormous challenge. Ben Heppner is the legendary Trojan hero Aeneas who escapes the doomed city of Troy and falls in love with the beautiful Queen of Carthage, Dido, sung by the radiant Lorraine Hunt Lieberson in her final appearance at the Met. Deborah Voigt is breathtaking as Cassandra, the Trojan prophetess who sees the looming calamity but is ignored

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)

The Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn concertos both have played a significant role in Ray Chen's career.
