L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti ( Recording )
67 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor

Anna Christy is Magda's feisty maid Lisette and Marius Brenciu sings the poet Prunier

Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )
48 editions published between 1937 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 348 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

Simon Boccanegra by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
17 editions published between 1952 and 2013 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The role of Simon Boccanegra is one of the capstones of Verdi's baritone repertoire. Sherrill Milnes gives a stunning portrayal of the 14th century Genoa doge, singing with both power and poetry, and reminding everyone why audiences acclaimed him the great American Verdi baritone of the day. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is Amelia, his long-lost daughter, in love with one of Boccanegra's most bitter political enemies. James Levine reveals his passion for Verdi's score, bringing out all the drama while reveling in its aching lyricism

La favorita by Gaetano Donizetti ( )
7 editions published between 1976 and 2005 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This spectacular cast makes any listener wonder why such a marvelous, colorful opera isn't much better known. Sensational Shirley Verrett is Leonora, the beautiful, mysterious lady who so completely captures the heart of the monk Fernando (Luciano Pavarotti at his finest) that he forsakes his calling to defeat the Moors in battle in order to win her hand. Alas, she is the mistress of the king (Sherrill Milnes), who is so besotted with her he is determined to defy the pope himself to make Leonora his queen. It's a tragic opera, so no one wins--except the audience

Werther [A lyric drama in four acts and five tableaux ; libretto by Edouard Blau, Paul Milliet, and Georges Hartmann, after Goethe] by Jules Massenet ( Recording )
16 editions published between 1953 and 2006 in French and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Werther is one of the iconic figures in literature, an innocent young man who feels nature deeply and loves unreservedly. In Massenet's alluring operatic version, Alfredo Kraus magnificently captures every nuance of this complex character--his aristocratic bearing and pure soul, his anguish that the only woman he can love is promised to another man, and finally the despair that leads to his suicide. Frederica von Stade sings Charlotte, the woman who returns Werther's feelings but honors her promise to someone else. Dawn Upshaw is a sparkling Sophie, Charlotte's younger sister
