La favorita by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

48 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

"Originally premiered in its French version as La Favorite on December 2, 1840 at the Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique in Paris, La Favorita is one of Gaetano Donizetti's most beautiful and sophisticated scores. It includes the enduringly popular arias "O mio Fernando", Spirto gentil", and "Vien, Leonora", and affords a generous supply of vocal and dramatic opportunities for a quartet of leading singers. This live 1971 performance from Tokyo boasts a stellar cast, headed by Fiorenza Cossotto - a paragon of bel canto tonal beauty and expressivity - in the title role. She has an ideal partner in Alfredo Kraus, who brings his brilliant tenor sound and great interpretive imagination to the role of Fernando. Rounding out the cast are the authoritative baritone Sesto Bruscantini in the role of King Alfonso and the majestic bass Ruggero Raimondi as Baldassare. The esteemed maestro Oliviero de Fabritiis conducts this historic performance, captured in vivid stereo sound."--Conteneur

Four years pass and the Crusaders in Palestine meet Gaston who is disguised as a hermit. The hermit accompanies the Crusaders into battle. He?le?ne has been captured by the Arabians and taken to the Emir's palace where she is reunited with Gaston. Trying to escape, they are halted and she is placed in the harem. The crusaders invade the harem and discover Helene. They denounce her for consorting with Gaston whom they take into custody and later condemn to be publicly humiliated and executed. A battle once again flares up between the Crusaders and Infidels and Gaston and Roger rush off to join the attack. Gaston re-enters later with the Count and together they proclaim victory.
