The young Leonie Rysanek triumphs in her second Met broadcast of the almost four dozen she would do during her astonishing career. Here she is Elizabeth of Valois, married to King Philip II of Spain (Jerome Hines), even though she loves his son, Don Carlo (Giulio Gari). Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition.

33 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister

26 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Performances of Berlioz's epic masterpiece are rare events--under James Levine's inspired leadership, the stellar cast and the Met's chorus and orchestra triumphantly meet the enormous challenge. Ben Heppner is the legendary Trojan hero Aeneas who escapes the doomed city of Troy and falls in love with the beautiful Queen of Carthage, Dido, sung by the radiant Lorraine Hunt Lieberson in her final appearance at the Met. Deborah Voigt is breathtaking as Cassandra, the Trojan prophetess who sees the looming calamity but is ignored
