Vanessa by Samuel Barber( Recording )

44 editions published between 1957 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 980 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
Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

47 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 930 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( Recording )

47 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 516 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 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. Lucia's descent into insanity is superbly conveyed in her sensational account of the famous mad scene. Richard Tucker is an ardent Edgardo and Frank Guarrera plays Enrico, Lucia's scheming brother
Der fliegende Holländer by Richard Wagner( Recording )

39 editions published between 1960 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 224 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
