Most widely held works by Renato Bruson
Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

80 editions published between 1972 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El principal atractivo de esta grabación es el espectacular registro sonoro del sello Decca en el que podemos apreciar la dirección brillante, equilibrada y dinámica del maestro Solti. Los cantantes son de reconocida fama pero sus voces no se corresponden con las características que Verdi diseñó para cada personaje. Aún así, la técnica depurada de Pavarotti, la profesionalidad de la Price y el trabajo actoral de Bruson, son elementos más que suficientes para poder disfrutar de esta versión

Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

50 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's last work is his only major comedy and one of his crowning glories. Judith Raskin and Luigi Alva are the enchanting Fenton and Nannetta who want to be married even though her father, Ford (Frank Guarrera), objects. Ford's wife Alice (Phyllis Curtin) is being wooed by Falstaff (Ezio Flagello) who is also interested in Meg Page (Mildred Miller). Fortunately Dame Quickly (Fedora Barbieri) is a match for Falstaff and teaches him a lesson

Legendary maestro Thomas Schippers conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and chorus in a December 1962 performance of Verdi's Ernani, which features a truly bravura performance by Carlo Bergonzi
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

32 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( )

50 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La acción transcurre en Roma, el 14 de junio de 1800, cuando Napoleón vence a los austríacos al mando del general Michael von Melas en la batalla de Marengo. Musicalmente, la obra se mantiene en el estilo desarrollado por Puccini hasta el momento: continuidad del discurso musical, roto apenas por una o dos arias. Las escenas más impactantes son el Te Deum del final del primer acto, y las arias Vissi d'arte (para Tosca) y E lucevan le stelle (para Mario). Dramáticamente, el segundo acto es de una intensidad inigualada por otra obra de Puccini
Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

35 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Puccini's opera about a pair of doomed lovers
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

27 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 532 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

Macbeth and Banquo encounter three prophesying witches on their journey home from battle. Macbeth's ambitions are kindled by the witches' prediction that he will someday be king. In an effort to hasten the prophecy, he and Lady Macbeth plot the murders of those in the way. Under the strain of the heinous crimes, Lady Macbeth dies and Macbeth edges toward insanity. In the tragic climax, Macbeth is killed in a duel and Malcolm becomes king
Alzira by Giuseppe Verdi( )

26 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schwarzkopf samlingen
Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( )

28 editions published between 1978 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem
Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( )

37 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poor Luisa Miller (Katia Ricciarelli) has given her heart to a man she knows as "Carlo." But he is really Rodolfo (Luciano Pavarotti), the son of Count Walter (Paul Plishka), who is being pressured by the Count to marry another woman. Despite every effort of Lucia's loving father (Leo Nucci), the evil Wurm (John Cheek), eventually triumphs. But it's Verdi's passionate music that wins in the end, brought to life by a cast who knows how to stir our hearts
