Most widely held works by Richard Tucker
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

89 editions published between 1952 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,342 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

In this eagerly-awaited complete opera recording from superstar Andrea Bocelli, the tenor assembles a fine cast to explore Verdi's most spectacular work: the award-winning American soprano Kristin Lewis takes the role of Aida, the brilliant Italian mezzo Veronica Simeoni as Amneri. Giorgio Giuseppini takes the role of Il Re (the Egyptian King), the powerful Ambrogio Maestri ("Italy's answer to Bryn Terfel") as Amonasro and Carlo Colombara, renowned Verdi bass, as Ramfis

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

54 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 865 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

14 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Monteux, a master of French repertoire, conducts in this 1955 performance of Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffman. This Metropolitan Opera production features an all-star cast that includes Rise Stevens, Richard Tucker, Roberta Peters, and Lucine Amara
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

44 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 422 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 330 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 set sees the legendary Fritz Reiner conducting the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus in this unforgettable performance
Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

9 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This extraordinary performance of Verdi's unforgettable Requiem features a dream cast: soprano Leontyne Price, equally acclaimed for her soaring phrasing and the nobility with which she sings the words, is joined by Plácido Domingo, one of the great Verdi tenors of his generation, distinguished mezzo-soprano Florence Quivar, and magnificent bass John Cheek. Under James Levine's inspired conducting, the Met Orchestra and Chorus deliver a thrilling account of this breathtaking score

The Met debut of soprano Joan Sutherland was one of the great evenings in the history of the company, and this broadcast, recorded only a few days after that memorable first night, captures the near hysteria that Sutherland's spectacular performance unleashed.
