Pollione, a Roman Proconsul, has two children by Norma, a Druid priestess, in the course of a long relationship. Norma isn't as young and beautiful as once she was. 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

The extraordinary Diana Damrau brings aching lyricism and coloratura fireworks to the role of Amina, the innocent village girl whose sleepwalking causes misunderstandings that almost prevent her marriage to the handsome Elvino, sung by new bel canto star tenor Javier Camarena. Michele Pertusi is Count Rodolfo, and Marco Armiliato conducts Bellini's melodious score

Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti( Recording )

76 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 728 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

Mignon by Ambroise Thomas( Recording )

29 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this performance, the sensational Risë Stevens sings one of her signature roles, the shy but loving Mignon. It's a true operatic rarity, not heard at the Met since Stevens last did it in 1949, and it overflows with astonishing musical variety. The opera has at least two roles dear to the hearts of great singing actors: Mignon, and old Lothario, who turns out to be her father - here the superb Ezio Pinza in a stellar performance. Mimi Benzell is the flirtatious Philine, and James Melton is Wilhelm Meister, Mignon's true love

Ferruccio Furlanetto is Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, who keeps Lindoro prisoner and decides to make Isabella his own wife--even though he is already married to Elvira (Lyubov Petrova). Earle Patriarco is Taddeo and Mariusz Kwiecien sings the pirate captain Haly

Rysanek's heartbreaking performance fully connects with Elizabeth's passion and despair. Beloved baritone Robert Merrill is Don Carlo's friend, Roderigo, killed by the Inquisition. Blanche Thebom is Princess Eboli and future superstar Martina Arroyo is heard in her Met debut role as the Celestial Voice
