Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

34 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,069 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

L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti( )

14 editions published between 1977 and 2009 in Italian and No Linguistic content and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Enchanting" might the best word to describe Donizetti's delightful, tune-filled, and touching comedy. The marvelous Carlo Bergonzi is Nemorino, a simple, good-hearted farmer, in love with the beautiful, capricious--and wealthy--Adina (Renato Scotto), who hardly knows he even exists. She is much more taken with the flashy good looks and superficial charms of Sergeant Belcore (Mario Sereni). Enter the clever quack Dr. Dulcamara (Fernando Corena), who's peddling cheap Bordeaux wine as a mystical love potent. But Nemorino's affection for Adina is honest and sincere, and since this is a comic opera, everything ends just the way it should
