47 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,050 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

West Side story by Leonard Bernstein( Recording )

93 editions published between 1985 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deutsche Grammophon's recording of West Side Story, made in New York in September 1984, represents Bernstein's final vision for his great American musical. This wasn't a typical 'cast recording:' everybody was recruited especially for the job and moulded, literally overnight, into a musical team. It was, to say the least, a highly unlikely cast for what was basically a Broadway show, but as this was not a staged production, the rather unorthodox step of casting world-class opera singers was taken to bring out the musical strengths of Bernstein's inspiration: "I suppose the only foreseeable problem was that they might sound too old - but they don't, they just sound marvellous!" Bernstein was to recount. For Bernstein, who had never conducted the work before, it was an opportunity to explore the work as he had envisioned it, unrestricted by the medium of the LP or the size of the orchestra pit or the dramatic staging of the work: For the recording, the potpourri overture which was originally used in the theatre and which Bernstein himself did not write was discarded, the string section was enlarged, and the woodwind section expanded, and Bernstein allowed himself to take the tempos "as I really dreamed it." The result is one of Bernstein's best and legendary recordings, beloved by millions around the world

There is nothing more exciting in the theater than witnessing the birth of a genuine star, and this is a prime example: Kiri Te Kanawa's Met debut, made on only a few hours' notice. She stepped on stage a virtual unknown, but after her ravishingly sung, deeply poignant portrayal of Desdemona, she was instantly beloved by opera lovers around the world.
