Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( Recording )

62 editions published between 1956 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( )

58 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,125 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
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

76 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two sisters whose fiancés have gone off to war (or so they pretend), a clever maid, a cynical old philosopher, and those same two fiancés in disguise--six characters is all it takes for Mozart and his librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte, to explore both the fun and the heartbreak that love can lead to in this equally lighthearted and deeply human comedy. James Levine masterfully leads a stellar cast that includes Carol Vaness and Tatiana Troyanos as the sisters, Jerry Hadley and Thomas Hampson as their fiancés, Betsy Norden as Despina, and Richard Van Allen as Don Alfonso
Le nozze di Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

31 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

43 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 864 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

Fidelio [Complete] by Ludwig van Beethoven( Recording )

21 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in German and Italian and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beethoven's only opera attracts the greatest singers and conductors, not only for its passionate music, but also because of its profoundly stirring message of freedom and the rights of the individual against tyranny. It all comes together superbly in this historic performance led by the legendary conductor Karl Böhm. Birgit Nilsson is Leonore, the woman who disguises herself as a man in her desperate attempt to locate her husband Florestan (James King, a couple weeks after his Met debut in the same role), who has been unjustly imprisoned by his enemy, Don Pizarro (Geraint Evans)
