SCHOENBERG : Moses und Aron by Arnold Schoenberg( )

51 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schoenberg's only full-length opera, based on the Biblical story of the exodus, was left incomplete at the time of his death. It is stunningly brought to life here in its Met premiere run, conducted by James Levine, who brings out all of the score's emotional intensity. John Tomlinson is Moses, the man appointed by God to lead his chosen people out of bondage and to worship its one, true, invisible Lord. His brother Aron (Philip Langridge) dazzles the people by working miracles and makes them worship a golden calf--leaving Moses in despair about his mission
Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tale of Katerina Ismailova, who is trapped in a loveless marriage. The action takes place in Mtsensk immediately before the Russian Revolution of 1917. In the tradition of "Anna Karenina" and "Madame Bovary" Katerina's fatalistic pusuit of passion has disasterous results

Death in Venice by Benjamin Britten( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Mann's celebrated tale of unrequited love and death is given a new perspective in Benjamin Britten's final opera, first performed just a year and a half before this Met broadcast. The composer's long-time companion, tenor Peter Pears, reprises his world-premiere portrayal of Gustav von Aschenbach, the elderly and solitary novelist at the center of the story, who tragically falls in love with the beautiful youth Tadzio (played by a dancer). Pears is joined by two other veterans of the opera's world premiere--John Shirley-Quirk, who plays the seven characters that propel Aschenbach to his destiny, and conductor Steuart Bedford
Billy Budd by Benjamin Britten( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herman Melville's gripping story of good and evil, set on an 18th-century British warship, inspired one of Britten's most brilliant operas. Richard Stillwell is Billy, the young sailor with a stammer and a pure heart whose goodness arouses the hatred of Claggart (James Morris). When Claggart falsely accuses Billy of attempting to incite mutiny, Billy strikes and accidentally kills him. Captain Vere (sung by Peter Pears, Britten's partner and creator of the role, in his last Met performance) has no choice but to have Billy hanged for murder, even though Claggart's changes are false. Peter Glossop is Mr. Redburn and Raymond Leppard conducts
