Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( Recording )

154 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried and Brünnhilde are the ideal mythical couple: the greatest hero the world has ever seen, born of a divine father, and a fearless warrior maiden of equally noble ancestry. As he takes off for more heroic adventures at the beginning of this final part of Wagner's epic Ring cycle, he even gives her his all-powerful ring as reminder of their love. The next time they meet, he's about to marry another woman--and swears he has never seen Brünnhilde. The culmination of one the grandest theatrical journeys, this opera features some of Wagner's most ravishingly beautiful and emotionally shattering music. Margaret Harshaw and Wolfgang Windgassen are the ill-fated couple, with Kurt Böhme as the evil mastermind Hagen

Tannhäuser by Richard Wagner( )

108 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wagner worked on Tannhäuser, his fifth opera, from 1842 to 1845, conducting the first performance on October 19, 1845 at the Dresden Royal Opera. The first two nights were uncertaqin successes, but by the third performance the opera began to have its effect on the audience. Over the next few years it became enormously popular throughout Germany, then moved to other countries. In 1859 it became the first Wagner opera to be performed in America. By 1861 Tannhäuser had been given hundreds of times, when Wagner was called upon to produce a revised version for the Paris Opéra. Despite the composer's efforts to adapt the work for French tastes, anti-Wagner riots broke out and he withdrew the work. It was not seen again in France until 1895. Meanwhile Tannhäuser, in the Dresden version, opened the second season of New York's Metropolitan Opera in November of 1884. Nowadays either the Dresden or Paris version may be given, depending on the director's preference; the current recording is an amalgam of the two. -- Page [1-2] of program notes

In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead
