Wozzeck by Alban Berg( Recording )

22 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine, a longtime champion of this groundbreaking work, has conducted every Met performance of Wozzeck since 1974. He brings Berg's revolutionary score to dramatic life in this broadcast, leading an extraordinary cast headed by Christian Boesch and Hildegard Behrens. Boesch gives a heartbreaking performance as the poor, abused soldier of the title, and Behrens is stunning as his faithless and conflicted wife, Marie. Richard Cassilly sings the vain Drum Major who seduces her, and Ragnar Ulfung and Franz Mazura are the Captain and the Doctor, who mock and torture Wozzeck

Part poetic fairy tale, part meditation on family and marriage, Strauss and Hofmannsthal's opera features one of the composer's most ambitious and colorful scores. This broadcast was part of a run of performances that marked a breakthrough for soprano Christine Goerke, who delivers a blazing portrayal of the Dyer's Wife. She is joined by an extraordinary cast that also includes Anne Schwanewilms in her Met debut as the Empress (the woman without a shadow of the title), Torsten Kerl as the Emperor, Johan Reuter as Barak, and Ildikó Komlósi as the Nurse. Vladimir Jurowski leads the vast musical forces

Parsifal [ein Bühnenweihfestspiel] by Richard Wagner( Recording )

39 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
