4 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in French and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragic fate of the nuns of the Carmelite convent at Copiègne during the French Revolution inspired one of Francis Poulenc's most personal works, and one of the most profoundly moving operas in the repertoire. At its center is Isabel Leonard as Blanche de la Force, a shy young aristocratic woman who joins the order on the eve of the Revolution, flees when the sisters, forced to leave their convent, take a vow of martyrdom, and is finally reunited with them as they face death by the guillotine. Felicity Palmer is Madame de Croissy, Patricia Racette is Madame Lidoine, and Elizabeth Bishop is Mother Marie. Paul Appleby and David Pittsinger co-star as Blanche's brother and father

La sonnambula by Vincenzo Bellini( )

3 editions published in 2007 in Italian and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic plot of Bellini's tale of an innocent Swiss girl whose sleepwalking lands her in the middle of a scandal may be difficult to believe. But spectacular singers like Joan Sutherland and Nicolai Gedda sweep away plot concerns with their stylish, impassioned portrayals. Even the most hard-hearted curmudgeon would melt for Joan Sutherland as the tender Amina; her golden voice is radiant as it conveys Amina's purity and utterly dazzling conveying her joy. No wonder the Met audience went wild
