Turandot by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

80 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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)

La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Recording )

64 editions published between 1952 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sensational new production of La boheme, the inspired concept of director Gale Edwards, is set in early 1930s Berlin, a city of liberal indulgence, glittering Spiegeltents and glitzy cabaret clubs, where no excess is considered too much
Aida by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

45 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 988 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
Vanessa by Samuel Barber( Recording )

42 editions published between 1957 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 954 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
Il trovatore by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

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.

Luisa Miller by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

43 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 382 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
Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

21 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 377 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

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."
