76 editions published between 1944 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Jessye Norman is Ariadne, the mythological heroine abandoned by her lover on the island of Naxos. In Strauss and Hofmannsthal's charming opera-within-an-opera, she is joined by Ruth Ann Swenson as Zerbinetta, the flirtatious leader of a commedia dell'arte troupe that--by order of an eccentric patron--unexpectedly finds itself in the middle of Ariadne's tragic story. Thomas Moser sings Bacchus, the young god who wins Ariadne, and Susanne Mentzer is the Composer of the fictional opera. Wagnerian bass-baritone Thomas Stewart makes a late-career cameo appearance as the Music Master

With a cast like this you can't help falling in love all over again with The barber of Seville. The marvelous Hermann Prey is Figaro, a guy you wouldn't buy a used car from, but he's great to have on your side considering he can charm anyone out of anything.

With James Levine conducting, it's all just sensational

Der heitere Mozart by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

20 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der heitere Mozart" tar for seg en lang rekke av komponistens mer sprø, musikalske innfall. Mozart (1756 - 1791) var en glad laks og en stor del av hans produksjon går inn under den kategorien som kalles underholdningsmusikk. Her finner vi lette, morsomme stykker og småserenader. I tillegg har man på platen fått plass til en rekke såkalte kanons, viser Mozart selv skrev teksten til. Enkelte av disse visene har på grunn av komponistens noe frivole sans for analhumor fått et visst rykte som noen skikkelige griseviser. Aftenpostens klassiskspaltist kaller denne platen for " en av de artigste Mozart-utgivelser som eksisterer"
