The combination of Leontyne Price and Franco Corelli sent audiences into delirium. Her rich, soaring soprano perfectly matched his ardent, romantic tenor. The year after their history-making joint debut at the Met, they were paired in Puccini's gripping tale of deception and revenge.

But it all goes tragically wrong

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora.

James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

A marvelous cast vividly brings to life Verdi's passionate story of love, betrayal, and revenge. Suave-voiced Carlo Bergonzi, often called the poet of tenors, is the Swedish king in love with Amelia (the glorious Leontyne Price in stupendous form). But she is the wife of his best friend and confidant, Count Anckarström (the great baritone Robert Merrill) who discovers the lovers' secret and assassinates the king at a royal ball.

21 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anyone lucky enough to have seen Kiri Te Kanawa in one of her great Mozart roles knows that this performance is a treasure. As Fiordiligi, one of the two sisters unknowingly being tested by their fiancées, Te Kanawa pulled at our heartstrings even while she was making us laugh. Nothing in the bravura vocal writing, with its fiendish runs and jumps, was too much for her creamy, exquisite voice. Diana Montague is her sister and fellow victim of their love interests, played by David Rendall and Håkan Hagegård

Don Juan: no woman can resist him and every man wants to be him. He is charisma in the flesh. But things go wrong, and divine retribution exacts the ultimate price. This all-star cast, galvanized by James Levine's passionate yet stylish conducting, brings to life one of the greatest of all operas. Sherrill Milnes is the magnetic Don and Leontyne Price the avenging Donna Anna. Irrepressible Teresa Stratas (Zerlina) is the peasant woman who can't say "no" but can't quite say "yes," either
