Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

74 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's crackling version of Shakespeare's monumental play attracts singers and conductors who are willing to take risks in pursuit of drama. With James Levine's taut conducting, the dimensions and colors of Verdi's score are revealed, galvanizing Sherrill Milnes (Macbeth) and Renata Scotto (Lady Macbeth). Milnes's strong baritone gives imposing dimensions to Macbeth, and the way Scotto combines the words with the music demonstrates why some people say Lady Macbeth is really the leading character
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

59 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 867 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
I vespri siciliani [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

47 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 861 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
Carmina Burana by Carl Orff( )

36 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugune Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra are joined by the Rutgers University Choir, Janice Harsanyi, Rudolf Petrak, and Harve Presnell for this 1960 production of Orff's Carmina Burana
Andrea Chénier by Umberto Giordano( Recording )

65 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giordano's gripping drama of love and politics at the time of the French Revolution demands larger-than-life performances, and the stellar lineup of artists in this broadcast delivers: Baritone Sherrill Milnes (celebrating his 25th Met anniversary with this appearance) is sensational as the servant-turned-revolutionary Gérard. Tenor Nicola Martinucci gives a powerful account of the title role, the poet Andrea Chénier. The two men are rivals for the love of Maddalena, sung with passion and charisma by Aprile Millo. Julius Rudel conducts
Thaïs by Jules Massenet( Recording )

37 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 722 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( )
