Faust by Charles Gounod( )

11 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable

Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( Recording )

44 editions published between 1963 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 553 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

49 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

28 editions published between 1966 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 450 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
