Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
55 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 675 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

Thaïs by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
36 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama
Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
33 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The young Leonie Rysanek triumphs in her second Met broadcast of the almost four dozen she would do during her astonishing career. Here she is Elizabeth of Valois, married to King Philip II of Spain (Jerome Hines), even though she loves his son, Don Carlo (Giulio Gari). Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition. Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice

Leonora loves a knight who serenades her as a troubadoor. The knight is in an army fighting a civil war agaist the Count, who also loves Leonora. The knight thinks he's the son of the gypsy woman who raised him & whose mother was killed by the Count, but he's actually the Count's brother.

Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
68 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Every ounce of searing emotion that Verdi lavished on his opera about love, betrayal, and its bitter consequences is brilliantly realized by James Levine's passionate conducting and his stellar cast. Plácido Domingo is at his most golden and ardent as Rodolfo, the son of Count Walter (Bonaldo Giaiotti), in love with the poor Luisa Miller (Renata Scotto). The count's henchman, Wurm (James Morris), blackmails and lies to prevent the marriage, but even Luisa's beloved father (Sherrill Milnes in a stunning performance) can't prevent the ultimate tragedy
I vespri siciliani by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
57 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This astonishing cast introduced Vespri to Met audiences only a few weeks before this broadcast and opera lovers fought for tickets to hear in person what all the excitement was about. James Levine's conducting was as passionate as it was authoritative, and the singers responded with performances that are still talked about with awe. Montserrat Caballé is lustrous as Elena, the young woman whose marriage to Arrigo (Nicolai Gedda) ignites a bloodbath. Sherrill Milnes is in top form as Monforte, the hated oppressor, who turns out to be much more than he seems
