Le nozze di Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

56 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With James Levine's masterful conducting, Mozart's sublime score works its colorful magic in this upstairs/downstairs drama. Ruggero Raimondi (Figaro) and Kathleen Battle (Susannah) are the servants, caught up in the ongoing domestic drama of the Count and Countess (Thomas Allen and Carol Vaness). Only all is not what it seems, and the battle lines keep shifting in the most unexpected ways. Frederica von Stade is Cherubino, the young page body who's in love with love and who keeps complicating everyone's best laid plans at exactly the wrong times

Gluck's deeply moving masterpiece returned to the Met in 2007 after an absence of 90 years, featuring an all-star cast vibrantly conducted by Louis Langrée in his company debut. Oreste, sung by the incomparable Plácido Domingo, is hounded by the furies for murdering his mother. He has been shipwrecked on Tauris where he and his friend Pylade (Paul Groves) are condemned to die at the hands of the priestess Iphigénie (Susan Graham). At the sacrificial altar Oreste and Iphigénie suddenly realize they are brother and sister--and face slaughter by the angry king Thoas (William Shimell)
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2006 in Italian and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performed at the 2006 Innsbruck Festival, Rene Jacobs leads a riveting production that is illustrated by the notion of Don Giovanni as a young rebel and taboo-breaker. Jacobs also tries to respect Mozart's original intentions as closely as possible
Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

51 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To truly enjoy Mozart's comedy of romantic intrigue, you need six spectacular singers and a great conductor to bring out all the subtly and verve in the music. Fortunately, we have James Levine on the podium, and Carol Vaness and Susanne Mentzer as the sisters engaged to Jerry Hadley and Dwayne Croft. And with Cecilia Bartoli as their feisty, manipulative maid, who just happens to be in cahoots with scheming Thomas Allen--Mozart has seldom been so elegantly and earthily sung

Faust by Charles Gounod( Recording )

11 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Pape's swaggering Mephistophélès is as seductive as it is demonic in this story of Faust (Roberto Alagna) who sells his soul to the devil to reclaim his youth. Wasting no time, Faust falls in love with Marguerite (Solie Isokoski) but things soon begin to go horribly wrong. Her brother (Dmitri Hvorostovvsky) is murdered, she goes insane, and Faust is dragged to hell. But the music is unforgettable
