"A Mandarin announces the law of the land ("Popolo di Pekino: La legge e questa ...)": Any man who desires to wed Turandot must first answer her three riddles. If he fails, he will be beheaded. The Prince of Persia has failed and is to be beheaded at moonrise. As the crowd surges towards the gates of the palace, crying for blood, a blind old man is pushed to the ground while his slave-girl, Li?, cries for help. A young man hears her cry and recognizes the old man as his long-lost father Timur, the deposed king of Tartary. The young Prince of Tartary urges his father not to speak his name because he fears the Chinese rulers who have conquered Tartary. Timur tells his son that of all his servants, only Li? has remained faithful to him. When the Prince asks her why, she tells him that once, long ago in the palace, he smiled upon her"--Wikipedia (Sept 2006)
Vanessa by Samuel Barber( Recording )

45 editions published between 1957 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This broadcast, recorded just two weeks after Vanessa's Met world premiere, presents the original cast in spectacular form. Eleanor Steber is marvelous as the title heroine, a beautiful woman awaiting the return of her long-lost lover. But the man who arrives is his son, Anatol (a suave Nicolai Gedda). The handsome youth plays a dangerous emotional game of wooing both Vanessa and her niece Erika (an enchanting Rosalind Elias)--with devastating consequences. Regina Resnik stars as the Old Baroness and Giorgio Tozzi is the kind Doctor. Conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos gives an impassioned reading of Barber's superb score
South Pacific by Richard Rodgers( Visual )

6 editions published between 1958 and 2010 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young American nurse from Little Rock meets the handsome and mysterious French planter on a South Pacific island during World War II. Seeking respite from the battles around them, they find refuge in each other as their romance blooms in the lush tropical paradise
Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

51 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Italian tenor Franco Corelli had it all: movie-star looks, ringing high notes he could hold for what seemed like forever, and a charismatic stage presence. With Corelli as Radames, the captain of the Egyptian army, it was more than believable that the daughter of the Egyptian king, Amneris (Irene Dalis), would want him--and that she would do everything in her power to keep him from her slave, Aida (Gabriella Tucci). This is Corelli's only broadcast Aida from the Met and required listening for fans of the art of the tenor
Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( )

50 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conductor Thomas Schippers leads a sensational cast in a gripping opera that at the time of this broadcast hadn't been heard at the Met in almost 40 years. As Luisa, Montserrat Caballé broke hearts, her beautiful voice and limpid singing conveying every nuance of the young girl's plight. Richard Tucker is a passionate, enticing Rodolfo, the man she loves but does not really know. As Luisa's tortured father, Sherrill Milnes demonstrates just how exciting a great Verdi baritone part can be. Ezio Flagello (Wurm) and Giorgio Tozzi (Count Walter) are evil personified
The barber of Seville by Gioacchino Rossini( Recording )

25 editions published between 1959 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridged holiday presentation for families of opera's most popular comedy, sung in English, features a cast of youthful Met stars: Isabel Leonard is the feisty Rosina, Alek Shrader is her suitor, Count Almaviva, and Rodion Pogossov is Figaro, the resourceful barber of the title. John Del Carlo sings as Rosina's foolish guardian, Dr. Bartolo, and Yves Abel conducts

Der fliegende Holländer by Richard Wagner( )

41 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner pulled out all the stops in his retelling of the ancient tale of the Flying Dutchman, using the orchestra to paint the scenes vividly in music. At one moment it is a raging storm at sea, the next it lets us experience the magic of two people falling irrevocably in love. Cornell MacNeil, in one of very few German roles he ever sang, is the dark and tortured Dutchman condemned to sail the seas until he find true love. An incandescent Leonie Rysanek, with her unique mix of erotic longing and spiritual bliss, reminds us why Senta was one of her greatest roles
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

34 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate
Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi( )

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

19 editions published between 1958 and 1997 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Maria Callas's only broadcast from the stage of the Met. Hearing "La Divina" in an actual performance is a unique thrill, and Lucia is a huge part of the palpable Callas mystique. Donizetti's bloody tale of the Scottish lass torn from her true love and forced into an arranged marriage, only to go mad and murder her bridegroom on their wedding night, was the perfect vehicle for Callas's wizardry. Her haunting voice simply becomes Lucia's--every facet of emotion so pronounced that we cannot escape her spell
