Le nozze di Figaro : K. 492 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

58 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,254 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

Così fan tutte by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

47 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 674 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
