Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( )

45 editions published between 1956 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Act IV. Desdemona's room. She is getting ready to go to bed, aided by Emilia. She is hurt by Otello's attitude toward her, for which she finds no explanation. She has just finished her prayers when Otello enters. He openly accuses her of having been unfaithful to him, even though, unheeded, Desdemona proclaims her innocence. He has already condemned her and proceeds to strangle her. Emilia returns announcing that Roderigo has been killed while trying to assassinate Cassio. Seeing Desdemona dead, she accuses Otello and cries that he has killed an innocent woman. Iago appears, and Emilia reproaches him for his intrigue; his only answer is to flee. Otello, dismayed and suddenly aware of the trap into which he has fallen gives a last kiss to his beloved wife and stabs himself
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

34 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roberta Peters is spectacular as Lucia, the innocent young woman forced into an arranged marriage that leads her into insanity and death. Peters's performance of one of opera's greatest mad scenes sparkles with emotion and vocal pyrotechnics. She is joined by Sándor Kónya, who plays her lover, Edgardo, and Frank Guarrera as her brother, Enrico, whose villainous plans set the tragedy in motion. Justino Díaz sings Raimondo

Verdi's famous opera is brought to vivid life in this magnificent production. The immortal tale of the noble Moor and his beautiful young wife, and of his lieutenant, whose jealousy and lust for power lead him to commit the ultimate treason. Otello is a figure larger than life, driven by his own jealousy to murder the woman he adores. Placido Domingo as Otello is at his peak in this role
The siege of Corinth = [L'assedio di Corinto] by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

49 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few weeks before this performance, Beverly Sills made her Met debut in this all-but-unknown Rossini opera. As one critic explained, "The arias are vocal extravaganzas that would terrorize all but a few singers today." But as Pamira, the young Greek woman who loves the Turkish leader, Maometto (Justino Díaz), who conquers Corinth with tragic consequences, Sills herself was really the conquering hero. "Perfectly phrased abandon," was one description of her singing, and the audience simply went berserk. Shirley Verrett co-stars in the pants role of Neocle, the young Greek captain who has been promised Pamira in marriage

Thaïs by Jules Massenet( )

16 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Take one ascetic monk named Athanaël and one ravishingly beautiful courtesan named Thaïs, add Massenet's sensual, melodious music, with equal dashes of eroticism and religious fervor--and you have a powerful opera that is at once a celebration of the sacred and the profane, of flesh and soul. This rarity had not been heard at the Met for almost 40 years when it was brought back as a vehicle for the great soprano Beverly Sills and the magnetic singing actor Sherrill Milnes. Together, they masterfully bring to life the searing conflict at the heart of the drama

Semele by George Frideric Handel( Recording )

20 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Semele (HWV 58) is a 'musical drama' in three parts by George Frideric Handel. The story comes from Ovid's Metamorphoses and concerns Semele, mother of Bacchus. Handel also referred to the work as 'The Story of Semele'. The work is classified as a 'musical drama', but it does fuse elements of opera, oratorio and classical drama, which anticipates the grand operas of the nineteenth century...Neither is it opera due to the large number of choruses..."--https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semele_(Handel)
