Lakmé by Léo Delibes ( Recording )
46 editions published between 1968 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Lakme' is een in India spelende opera van een componist die vooral bekend werd door zijn balletten 'Sylvia' en 'Coppelia'. De vocale delen 'Lakme, ton doux regard se voila', 'Ah, ou va le jeune indoue' (bijgenaamd de 'Klokjesaria'), 'Tu m'as donne le plus doux reve' en 'Viens, Mallika' worden wel eens apart uitgevoerd. Het laatste stuk is een duet dat plotseling populairwerd toen het als muziek in een t.v.-spotje van Veilig Verkeer Nederland werd gebruikt. De 'Air de danses' (of 'Ballet der Bajaderen') wordt ook wel apart gespeeld
Manon by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
28 editions published between 1970 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who can resist the charms of Manon or remain unmoved by her fate? Ruth Ann Swenson takes on Massenet's title heroine, the equally beautiful and high-spirited young girl who turns her back on life in a convent when she meets the handsome des Grieux (Giuseppe Sabbatini)--only to be seduced by the promise of a luxurious existence as the mistress of the rich old Brétigny (Kim Josephson). When she learns that des Grieux, desperate she has left him, is about to take holy orders, she changes her mind--but it is too late, and their love story ends in tragedy

After dominating the international opera stage for more than 30 years, Dame Joan Sutherland takes a final bow in her stunning farewell performance of Les Huguenots, Meyerbeer's grand French opera. Now regarded as one of the most memorable nights in Australia's musical history, Sutherland's formidable vocal skill is on full display throughout the demanding score, while conductor Richard Bonynge inspires orchestral brilliance at every turn

52 editions published between 1971 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great Nicolai Gedda leads the cast as the lovelorn poet of the title, whose quest for the ideal woman turns into a series of harrowing, fantastical adventures. Régine Crespin is the courtesan Giulietta, Colette Boky is Olympia, the mechanical doll who magically comes to life, and Lucine Amara is Antonia, the young innocent who tragically sings herself to death. Gabriel Bacquier delivers a thrilling portrayal of the Four Villains, and Frederica von Stade is Hoffmann's sidekick and muse, Nicklausse

Star conductor Simon Rattle leads a superb cast in this mesmerizing performance of Debussy's rarely staged opera. Stéphane Degout and Magdalena Kožená are the tragic title couple--lovers caught in a web of passion as strong as it is forbidden. Gerald Finley delivers a remarkable portrayal of Golaud, Mélisande's husband and Pelléas's half-brother, and Felicity Palmer is their mother, Geneviève. Willard White brings dramatic and vocal intensity to the brief but crucial role of the blind old king Arkel

This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience

Gabriel Bacquier sings his servant, Leporello, and Julia Varady is the besotted Donna Elvira
