Otello by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )

Act II. A ground-floor hall in the castle; a door leads to the garden. Iago continues his plan: he suggests to Cassio to ask Desdemona to intercede in his favour with Otello. In a monologue, Iago describes his cynical view of life, then he plants the seeds of jealousy in the Moor's soul, leading him to suspect that there is a secret love between Cassio and Desdemona. Thus, when the woman, arriving from the garden, tries to intercede for the degraded captain, Otello's jealousy is enflamed, and he brusquely refuses the request. Once again, Iago insinuates having heard some compromising words murmured by Cassio in his sleep, and, having obtained with the help of his wife Emilia a handkerchief that Otello had given to his young wife, affirms having seen it in Cassio's hands. For Otello, this is proof enough. He vows terrible revenge
Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Not many companies have the resources to put on Wagner's only comedy with all the élan it deserves. The Met does, particularly when Music Director James Levine is conducting: his affection for the work is matched only by his skill at bringing it to life. Levine leads a top-flight cast of solo singers, plus a huge chorus and orchestra. James Morris conveys all of Hans Sachs wisdom, and humanity; Karita Mattila sparkles as Eva, the young woman in love with Walther, the impetuous knight, ardently sung by Ben Heppner
