39 editions published between 1952 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance showcases Luciano Pavarotti at his magnificent best. The role of good hearted Nemorino might have been written just for him. Hopelessly in love with wealthy Adina (Kathleen Battle), Nemorino watches, helpless, as flashy Sergeant Belcore (Gino Quilico) seems to win her heart. Enter Dr. Dulcamara (Paul Plishka). He's a quack, but Nemorino believes that the love potion Dulcamara is peddling will help him win Adina's love. It's only a bottle of plain old Bordeaux, but never underestimate the power of true love -- or of Luciano Pavarotti's seductive tenor
Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

83 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Above all, Verdi's last opera requires the greatest of conductors and a consummate singing actor in the title role. Here we have both: James Levine, who knows exactly how to draw out all the superb colors in the orchestra, while keeping the music effervescent as he also gives the singers all the room they need to bring their roles to life. As Falstaff, the masterful Giuseppe Taddei knows the secret of using every word and note to create an indelible and loveable character. Fiorenza Cossotto is Dame Quickly, the woman who gives Falstaff a run for his money

Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( )

17 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in Italian and No Linguistic content and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults
