Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

Verdi's last work is his only major comedy and one of his crowning glories. Judith Raskin and Luigi Alva are the enchanting Fenton and Nannetta who want to be married even though her father, Ford (Frank Guarrera), objects. Ford's wife Alice (Phyllis Curtin) is being wooed by Falstaff (Ezio Flagello) who is also interested in Meg Page (Mildred Miller). Fortunately Dame Quickly (Fedora Barbieri) is a match for Falstaff and teaches him a lesson
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

154 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a long time, Così fan tutte was considered scandalous. Which is not entirely surprising if you look at its story of two sisters (Maria Ewing and Pilar Lorengar) who jump from grief over their fiancés going off to war to agreeing to marry two attractive strangers (David Rendall and Lenus Carlson) within the space of a couple days. Except the strangers are in fact the fiancés in disguise, and the whole thing is a plot masterminded by a cynical old philosopher (Donald Gramm) and a clever maid (Kathleen Battle). Scandalous or not, Così fan tutte has remained one of opera's most contemporary comedies--especially when conducted masterfully by James Levine

Kiri Te Kanawa gives an elegant and touching performance in one of her greatest roles, the wealthy and cultured young Countess Madeleine, who must choose between her two artist suitors: the composer Flamand (David Kuebler) and the poet Olivier (Simon Keenlyside). Jan-Hendrik Rootering is La Roche, the temperamental theater director whose troupe entertains the Countess. Wolfgang Brendel is her brother, the Count, and Kathryn Harries sings the actress Clairon. Andrew Davis conducts

Christopher Maltman and Susanna Phillips are Eisenstein and Rosalinde, the married couple at the center of this lighthearted tale of love, revenge, and mistaken identities. Paulo Szot sings Falke, Eisenstein's friend, who sets the plot in motion. Anthony Roth Costanzo is Prince Orlofsky, Jane Archibald sings Adele, and Broadway star Danny Burstein is Frosch, the jailer.
