La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

95 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For an entire generation, Zinka Milanov was the Verdi soprano, and this broadcast of one of her greatest roles shows why. Her enormous, dark, rich voice was even from top to bottom, and she could unfurl it dramatically to soar over orchestra and chorus, or scale it back to a haunting whisper. Richard Tucker plays the man who loves her, and Leonard Warren is her brother, who is so consumed with the desire for vengeance that he wants to kill them both

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

55 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renata Tebaldi, Richard Tucker, and Puccini's La Bohème. That says it all. Two greatly beloved singers in roles they made their own--but seldom got to sing on the Met stage together. For many opera lovers, Tebaldi was the quintessential Mimì. The Italianate warmth and generosity of her voice ideally expressed every facet of Mimì's character: her trusting simplicity as she falls in love, the anguish of parting from her beloved Rodolfo (Tucker at his ardent best), their brief poignant reunion, and finally her tragic death. The supporting cast includes Cesare Siepi as Colline

Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

47 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorable broadcast performance marks the only time in company history that the great Verdians Martina Arroyo, Shirley Verrett, Richard Tucker, and Mario Sereni appeared on the Met stage together. Tucker is Manrico, the troubadour and political rebel in love with Leonora (Arroyo). But she is also being wooed by Count di Luna (Sereni), Manrico’s political enemy. What neither of them realizes—until tragedy strikes—is that Manrico and di Luna are brothers. Verrett sings Azucena, the mysterious Gypsy pulling the strings at the center of the story. Zubin Mehta conducts the powerful score

Carmen by Georges Bizet( )

11 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in French and German and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For a generation of opera lovers, Rise Stevens was the Carmen. Her husky, insinuating voice was the embodiment of Bizet's gypsy temptress. Taken from a February 16, 1952 broadcast, this two CD set sees the legendary Fritz Reiner conducting the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus in this unforgettable performance
