La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )
1 edition published in 1993 in Italian and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of La bohème is the epitome of young starving artists whose lifestyles and escapades gave us the Bohemian genre. A notion of the poverty in which they are developing their artistic talents is evident from the very first scene as painter Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm by burning pages from Rodolfo's latest drama. Set in 1830s Paris, we follow the love between Mimi and Rodolfo as the young artists experience triumphs and tragedies
Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )
109 editions published between 1324 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
Tosca by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

Sometimes everything clicks during a performance, and this Tosca is one of those rare moments. Three of the greatest singers in the world--Renata Tebaldi, Richard Tucker, and Leonard Warren--all in such spectacular voice, effortlessly convey every bit of Puccini's hair-raising drama. With Dimitri Mitropoulos bringing the orchestra and chorus into the same fever pitch as the singers, it's no wonder some operagoers say this Tosca is their standard for judging all others

Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )
48 editions published between 1937 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The legendary Renata Tebaldi had a special affinity for Puccini. It wasn't only that her rich, mahogany sound delivered his soaring vocal lines so beautifully, that her voice would rise triumphantly over the most dramatic orchestral climaxes, or soar in the most haunting pianissimo. It was also that she gave every word its own special timbre, making you feel every bit of her character's emotion. In this broadcast, she calls on each of these vocal resources to portray Manon Lescaut, a passionate young girl overwhelmed by her conflicting desires
La Gioconda by Amilcare Ponchielli( Recording )
33 editions published between 1960 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
