Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( )

143 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi's Aida has come to symbolize grand opera, and with such a legendary cast as the one assembled for this performance it's easy to see why. With her sumptuous sound, Zinka Milanov embodied Aida for a generation of opera-lovers, and her distinctive voice filled the theater, and listeners' hearts, with every facet of the character's conflicting emotions. With the great Leonard Warren as her father, Amonasro, their monumental clash, then reconciliation, is a performance for the ages. Fedora Barbieri is Amneris, Aida's rival for the love of the mighty warrior Radamès (Kurt Baum), and Jerome Hines is the high priest Ramfis
Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( )

85 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,740 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
Un ballo in maschera by Giuseppe Verdi( )

31 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 997 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
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( )

60 editions published between 1952 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a generation, Zinka Milanov owned the role of La Gioconda, the woman who kills herself rather than yield to the cruel Inquisition spy (Leonard Warren) as she saves the man she loves (Kurt Baum) and the woman he loves (Fedora Barbieri). With the great Cesare Siepi and the sumptuous-voiced Jean Madeira, this opera is filled with over-the-top emotion and white-hot drama

Don Carlo by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

33 editions published between 1950 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the Met's first radio broadcast of Verdi's magnificent opera. The company had not performed the work since the 1920s when Rudolf Bing opened his first season as general manager with it, five days before this performance. The production introduced two spectacular new singers to New York: Cesare Siepi (King Philip) and Fedora Barbieri (Eboli). Add Jussi Björling in the title role and Robert Merrill as his friend, Rodrigo, and it's easy to see why this now legendary cast thrilled audiences--and why Don Carlo has since become a staple of the Met repertoire
