Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

89 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
I puritani by Vincenzo Bellini( )

112 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this production opened, it had been more than half a century since Met audiences had last heard Bellini's gem of an opera. It was well worth the wait. "The best cast in the world," was how one critic described the legendary performers the Met brought together. The pair sent audiences into a frenzy with their sumptuous, dazzling singing. Joan Sutherland, dubbed "La Stupenda" by her fans and the press, is the hapless heroine Elvira who loses her heart--and her sanity--over Luciano Pavarotti, the Cavalier hero torn between love and duty
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( )

115 editions published between 1949 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's immortal tragedy about the clash of true love with social convention has seldom been as poignant as in this broadcast. The sensational Italian tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano, in his second season at the Met, offers his first Alfredo with the company--a tender, romantic, and gorgeously sung performance that perfectly matches Eleanor Steber's sumptuous and touching Violetta. Robert Merrill, heard here at the beginning of his career, would go on to make the role of Germont one of his calling cards

Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( )

106 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best
