Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( Recording )

74 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Petra Lang glänzt auf beständig hohem Niveau. Und wenn Matti Salminen, der als einziger schon bei Janowskis erstem Ring in den 80er Jahren dabei war, auf die Bühne kommt, geht die Sonne auf, immer noch. Der weltweit gefeierte Lance Ryan als Siegfried dagegen: vordergründig hell und licht, eigentlich aber substanzarm und unheldisch. Aus der Besetzung ragt Marina Prudenskaja als süffig-düstere Waltraute hervor. Die finale Stille zerreißt dann ein einsamer "Danke!"-Rufer. Unnötig, wahrscheinlich auch bestellt - egal. Nach so einer Leistung kann man schon mal dankbar sein" (Tagesspiegel)

Der fliegende Holländer by Richard Wagner( Recording )

59 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Flying Dutchman is condemned to roam the seven seas for eternity, until he can find a woman who can redeem him through her unswerving love. James Morris's Dutchman is legendary--utterly commanding, beautifully sung, and revealing every bit of this character's inner torture and hope. The great Matti Salminen is Daland, a sea captain with a daughter he would like to marry off, and Hildegard Behrens is Senta, his daughter who longs to save the Dutchman. With conductor James Conlon making the Met orchestra another character in the drama, this is Wagnerian storytelling at its best

Der Freischutz by Carl Maria von Weber( )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
