Gluck's deeply moving masterpiece returned to the Met in 2007 after an absence of 90 years, featuring an all-star cast vibrantly conducted by Louis Langrée in his company debut.

He has been shipwrecked on Tauris where he and his friend Pylade (Paul Groves) are condemned to die at the hands of the priestess Iphigénie (Susan Graham).

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

50 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To truly enjoy Mozart's comedy of romantic intrigue, you need six spectacular singers and a great conductor to bring out all the subtly and verve in the music. Fortunately, we have James Levine on the podium, and Carol Vaness and Susanne Mentzer as the sisters engaged to Jerry Hadley and Dwayne Croft. And with Cecilia Bartoli as their feisty, manipulative maid, who just happens to be in cahoots with scheming Thomas Allen--Mozart has seldom been so elegantly and earthily sung

Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

9 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable
