Who could resist the tales of Hoffmann when ardent-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda as the title hero of Offenbach's opera spins them? Combining dark German romanticism with scintillating music, the stories tell of the poet's ill-fated relationships with four women. Gedda is paired with the great singing actor George London as his constant nemesis. Jean Morel conducts this French masterpiece
Le nozze di Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( Recording )
34 editions published between 1950 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Preparing for their wedding, the valet Figaro learns from the maid Susanna that their philandering employer, Count Almaviva, has designs on her. In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. Alone later that day, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Almaviva chases Cherubino away and sends his wife, who he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he follows. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon

Tosca by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )
44 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tosca, the beautiful, glamorous singer who has all of Rome at her feet, is one of the iconic soprano roles of the Italian repertoire. She's caught between two men--her lover, the handsome, idealistic painter Cavaradossi, and the villainous Baron Scarpia, Rome's all-powerful chief of police, who will stop at nothing to win Tosca for himself. Puccini's story of torture, attempted rape, murder, suicide, and general mayhem is as thrilling and dramatic as anything seen on the operatic stage. Thanks to Eleanor Steber's impetuous title heroine, George London's malevolent Scarpia, and Carlo Bergonzi's romantic Cavaradossi, this Tosca still sends chills down your spine

Parsifal by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
13 editions published between 1951 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
