Most widely held works by Mario Del Monaco
Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( )

138 editions published between 1324 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many opera fans tenor Mario Del Monaco simply was Otello. His brilliant, ringing voice was enormous, but he could also scale it down to a haunting whisper. This is a performance of gripping dramatic power that will never be forgotten. Fortunately this broadcast also includes the renowned Victoria del los Angeles as a melting Desdemona, and the great Verdi baritone Leonard Warren as Iago

La fanciulla del West by Giacomo Puccini( )

63 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the action of the opera, based on the play by David Belasco, set at the height of the notorious Californian Gold Rush; this opera represents "a major advance on Puccini's previous work, especially in the careful interweaving of Western elements into an altogether larger canvas than anything he had tackled before."

Cavalleria rusticana by Pietro Mascagni( )

82 editions published between 1953 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opera's most famous operatic duo work together superbly for many reasons, not the least of which, is their double-barrel dose of hardcore erotic passion. Both were considered scandalous when they premiered, for their unabashed, gritty portrayals of love among society's outcasts. The two literally define versimo opera. Zinka Milanov and Kurt Baum battle it out in Cavalleria Rusticana; and Mario del Monaco is the grieving clown in Pagliacci

Adriana Lecouvreur by Francesco Cilèa( Recording )

50 editions published between 1961 and 1995 in 7 languages and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even being the world's greatest and most admired actress doesn't guarantee that the handsome young man you love is safe from other women--especially when you have a conniving Princess as a rival. On the other hand, there is something marvelously romantic about being killed by a bouquet of poisoned violets. Montserrat Caballé is the definitive Adriana, the actress of the title, opposite José Carreras as the object of her affection, Maurizio. Fiorenza Cossotto is the delightfully imperious Princess di Bouillon

A temple virgin, Adalgisa, is young and beautiful. Pollione must have her. He has importuned the young virgin to run away with him to Rome, and she has finally agreed. When Norma learns of Pollione's faithlessness, she threatens to kill the two children. Before she can do this, the Druid temple priests apprehend Pollione as he attempts to abscond with their sacred virgin, Adalgisa. The priests build a pyre to burn Pollione to death. Norma relents. Instead of killing the children, she blames herself for her misery and climbs onto the pyre to die with Pollione
