Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell

8 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in Italian and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally premiered in its French version as La Favorite on December 2, 1840 at the Théâtre de l'Académie Royale de Musique in Paris, La Favorita is one of Gaetano Donizetti's most beautiful and sophisticated scores. It includes the enduringly popular arias "O mio Fernando", Spirto gentil", and "Vien, Leonora", and affords a generous supply of vocal and dramatic opportunities for a quartet of leading singers. This live 1971 performance from Tokyo boasts a stellar cast, headed by Fiorenza Cossotto - a paragon of bel canto tonal beauty and expressivity - in the title role. She has an ideal partner in Alfredo Kraus, who brings his brilliant tenor sound and great interpretive imagination to the role of Fernando. Rounding out the cast are the authoritative baritone Sesto Bruscantini in the role of King Alfonso and the majestic bass Ruggero Raimondi as Baldassare. The esteemed maestro Oliviero de Fabritiis conducts this historic performance, captured in vivid stereo sound."--Conteneur
Jerusalem opera in quattro atti by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Toulouse and Palestine in 1095 and 1099, a man (Roger) covets his brother Gaston's wife (Hélène) but his plot to kill Gaston goes awry and ends in the death of the Count and Gaston's disgrace and exile. Four years pass and the Crusaders in Palestine meet Gaston who is disguised as a hermit. The hermit accompanies the Crusaders into battle. Hélène has been captured by the Arabians and taken to the Emir's palace where she is reunited with Gaston. Trying to escape, they are halted and she is placed in the harem. The crusaders invade the harem and discover Hélène. They denounce her for consorting with Gaston whom they take into custody and later condemn to be publicly humiliated and executed. A battle once again flares up between the Crusaders and Infidels and Gaston and Roger rush off to join the attack. Gaston re-enters later with the Count and together they proclaim victory. Roger, mortally wounded, is brought in. He reveals it was he who ordered the now infamous attack and Gaston is pardoned
