Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

71 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults

I vespri siciliani : [opera in 5 acts] by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

51 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 927 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

Andrea Chenier by Umberto Giordano( Recording )

65 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 874 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
Three poems of Fiona MacLeod [op. 11] ; The pleasure-dome of Kubla Khan [op. 8] ; Song of the dagger ; Four German songs ; Four impressions ; Three tone-pictures [op. 5] by Charles Tomlinson Griffes( Recording )

Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

62 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 823 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
Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

Macbeth by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

76 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 715 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
Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

53 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Retells the story of Verdi's opera in which the love of the enslaved Ethiopian princess for an Egyptian general brings tragedy to all involved
Thaïs by Jules Massenet( Recording )

37 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 618 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
Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

72 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conductor Thomas Schippers leads a sensational cast in a gripping opera that at the time of this broadcast hadn't been heard at the Met in almost 40 years. As Luisa, Montserrat Caballé broke hearts, her beautiful voice and limpid singing conveying every nuance of the young girl's plight. Richard Tucker is a passionate, enticing Rodolfo, the man she loves but does not really know. As Luisa's tortured father, Sherrill Milnes demonstrates just how exciting a great Verdi baritone part can be. Ezio Flagello (Wurm) and Giorgio Tozzi (Count Walter) are evil personified
