Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

43 editions published between 1963 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

27 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 439 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
