Barbara Bonney sings Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, and Raymond Very is Matteo, the officer who thinks he is in love with Arabella but unexpectedly finds his happiness elsewhere.

Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

44 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 263 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
Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )

31 editions published between 1964 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine's affection for Debussy's masterful score creates a performance rich in orchestral and vocal colors, with all the subtle emotional shifts of the drama vividly brought to life. The magnificent Frederica von Stade is Mélisande, in a production staged for her 25th Met anniversary. Victor Braun and Dwayne Croft are half-brothers Golaud and Pelléas--one Mélisande's husband, the other her lover. Marilyn Horne brings her sumptuous voice to the role of Geneviève, Pelléas and Golaud's mother, and Robert Lloyd is heartbreaking as the blind old king Arkel

George London is the tormented Flying Dutchman of legend, condemned to sail the seas unless he can find a woman who will remain true to him until her death. Leonie Rysanek is Senta, the innocently obsessed young girl who kills herself to save him. Together, they bring Wagner's early opera to thrilling life
Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

ATMA Classique is reissuing one of Les Violons du Roy's seminal discs: the orchestra's recording of Mozart's Requiem as revised and completed by Robert D. Levin. The soloists are Karina Gauvin, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, John Tessier, and Nathan Berg. Bernard Labadie conducts Les Violons du Roy and the choir of La Chapelle de Québec. This recording was originally released on the Dorian label in 2002, and won the JUNO Award for Best Classical Album of the year in the vocal or choral performance category. This recording of Mozart's Requiem is especially poignant, as it was made in Troy, NewYork in the week following the September 11 attacks in 2001.The recording captures the emotion and immediacy of that special performance, which was later featured on CBC Television's Opening Night. The Globe & Mail wrote about "an appreciation of the transcendent aspects of the Requiem as a work of art that is about death, survival and the possibility of an afterlife. There is the magnificence of the music, so often used to solemnly mark terrible tragedy and bring solace."

When George London stepped on stage as the legendary lover Don Giovanni, audiences gasped. Handsome and effortlessly charismatic, he promised to fulfill every woman's desire. No wonder the beautiful Lisa Della Casa (Elvira) didn't want to let him go, and Eleanor Steber (Anna) wants to put off her wedding for another year. Ezio Flagello is the servant Leporello and Cesare Valletti is a very aristocratic Don Ottavio. The great conductor Karl Böhm revisits the opera of his Met debut
