Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Visual )

27 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried by Richard Wagner( )

32 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the legendary performances from the Met's vast archive of historic broadcasts. The incomparable Lauritz Melchior stars in the title role of the young hero who sets out to explore the world--killing the fierce dragon Fafner (Eduard Habich) and the evil dwarf Mime (Karl Laufkötter) along the way. When Wotan (the great Friedrich Schorr) tries to stop him, Siegfried uses his sword to break the god's spear and makes his way to the sleeping Brünnhilde (a radiant Kirsten Flagstad). He awakens her with a kiss--and sets in motion the events that, in the following opera, will bring about the end of the world. Kerstin Thorborg co-stars as Erda and Artur Bodanzky conducts

In fury, Alberich bitterly spits forth the ring's unforgiving curse

""The central part of the Ring tetralogy is precisely this: a hero has been created who would actually have had all the attributes of freedom, but nobody remembered to tell him ..." (Patrice Chéreau). "One can only marvel at how enthrallingly Chéreau has made visible every ramification of this malignant idyll and bitter comedy. In its faithful service to this fabulously polished staging Brian Large's video direction is a model" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)."--Conteneur
